    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 began on June 22, 2015. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-800-331-4331.

    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.
