Vehicles Affected: Approximately 3,100 model-year 2015 Toyota Yaris hatchbacks
The Problem: A front upper shock assembly bearing could be damaged, causing abnormal noises while driving on rough road surfaces or turning the steering wheel. If the vehicle continues to be operated in this condition, a front shock absorber piston rod could separate, causing a loss of vehicle stability and increasing the risk of a crash.
The Fix: Dealers will replace the strut mounting bearings with improved ones. If a strut mounting bearing is found to be damaged, the dealer will replace the strut and front suspension support sub-assembly with a new one.
What Owners Should Do: The automaker did not immediately announce an owner-notification schedule. Owners can call Toyota at 800-331-4331 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or go to www.safercar.gov, for more info.
