Japan-based car manufacturer Toyota has announced a recall of its diesel version of Corolla Altis sedan in the Indian market. The company has recalled about 1,100 units of the vehicle for a faulty drive shaft. An official statement was released by the company, which said that they initiated a recall plan in May 2013 for its flagship model.


The statement said, “The campaign is for Corolla Altis Diesel manufactured between August 3, 2012, and February 14, 2013.” Officials from the company said that the recall will affect about 1,100 units of the vehicle that have been offered to the Indian buyers.

The statement from the company also added that a potential aberration on the left and right side of the drive shaft has been noticed in a couple of cases. Sources familiar with the development said that trained engineers of TKM will take just two hours to fix the glitch.

On the other hand, auto maker Nissan Motors announced the recall of 22,188 units of its Micra hatchback and Sunny sedan in the Indian market, due to a faulty braking system. Even in April 2013, Toyota recalled a selective lot of Corolla premium sedan that was offered to Indian customers, for faulty airbags.
