2019 Toyota Yaris recalled

Toyota has recalled the 2019 Yaris over concerns about the left-rear window glass. According to the company, the glass may have been inadequately tempered because of an improper cooling process during manufacture. If the glass is broken it won't shatter into small pieces, instead breaking into large fragments, increasing occupants' risk of injury in an accident. A total of 26 cars are included in the campaign – a VIN list is attached here.
