*UPDATE* : All Toyota vehicles sold in Australia are NOT affected. Additionally all Lexus products sold in Australia are manufactured in Japan. As stated by Lexus US, Lexus vehicles are not subject to the recall at all. Australia Toyota & Lexus customers have nothing to worry about.
CarAdvice has recently reported on several recalls affecting vehicles manufactured by auto giant Toyota. As we have mentioned on several occasions, vehicles sold by Toyota Australia are not affected by these US-based recalls.
It must still be a public relations issue, though. Toyota Australia has gone one step further, today releasing a short but to-the-point statement, again distancing itself from overseas recalls. It reads as follows:
Accelerator pedals for Toyota vehicles sold in Australia, and those manufactured in Australia for export, are provided by a different supplier.
Toyota Australia wishes to advise that Toyota vehicles it sells in Australia are not affected by the recalls announced in the North American market.
