Toyota Australia has issued an urgent recall on a further 6260 Corollas fitted with potentially deadly Takata airbags after two serious injuries were caused by the faulty devices in a crash in Sydney in late August. The latest recall adds 5475 examples of the ZZE122 Corolla, and 785 examples of the ZZE123 Sportivo variant. Affected vehicles were sold between 30 April, 2003 and 30 September, 2004 (MY2003–2005).

To keep the doors open amid a sharp downturn in business, an increasing number of car servicing staff and mechanics have lost their jobs or been forced to take leave, making it harder for consumers to book in vehicles for critical repairs.
