Problem Summary: Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (Toyota) is recalling certain model year 2012-2015 Yaris vehicles manufactured August 31, 2011, to February 9, 2015, and sold in Puerto Rico. The affected vehicles may have been manufactured with a roof headliner that does not provide the proper occupant protection in the event of a crash. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 201, " Occupant Protection in Interior Impact."
Consequence: If the vehicles are equipped with a headliner that does not meet the impact requirements, there is an increased risk of occupantl injury in the event of a crash.
What Owners Should Do: Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will replace the headliner, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in mid-April 2015. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-800-331-4331.
Component: STEERING:ELECTRIC POWER ASSIST SYSTEM
Problem Summary: TOYOTA IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2012 YARIS VEHICLES MANUFACTURED AUGUST 21, 2011, THROUGH AUGUST 31, 2011. A RELAY IN THE POWER STEERING CONTROL MODULE OF THE ELECTRONIC POWER STEERING SYSTEM COULD EXPERIENCE A SHORT CIRCUIT DUE TO INSUFFICIENT DISTANCE BETWEEN TERMINALS IN THE RELAY AND MOISTURE CONTAMINATION OF RELAY COIL WINDINGS.
