Toyota is recalling 60 examples of its HiLux ute as their compliance labels have an incorrect Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM) capacity.

This means they’re not compliant with Australian Design Rule 61/02.

The issue affects 58 4×4 HiLux models in SR5 manual, Rogue and Rugged X guise, produced between March and June 2021, and two 4×2 SR5 Hi-Rider models manufactured in May 2021.

Toyota is contacting owners of affected vehicles.

If you own one, you’ll need to contact a Toyota dealer to organise a free replacement of the second stage compliance label, which will take approximately 20 minutes.

The company cautions you may need to make your vehicle available for a longer period of time, however, depending on the dealer’s work schedule.

If you have any further questions, you can contact the Toyota Recall Campaign Helpline on weekdays from 8am to 6pm on 1800 987 366.
