Toyota iQ Recalled In UK

Following a series of complaints about the Toyota iQ’s steering system in Japan, the company also recalled this car in the United Kingdom to prevent further complications.

The issue is with the car’s electric Power Steering (EPS) system. When driving on certain roadside safety side strips or ‘rumble strips’, signals received by the EPS sensors may be incorrectly interpreted by the EPS control unit, triggering the EPS warning light. Should this happen, the driver would need to apply extra effort to steer the vehicle.

Approximately 12,000 UK registered vehicles are involved in this recall.

The affected cars are produced between 11 September 2008 and 22 October 2010. The repair involves the update or replacement of the EPS control unit software. The job will take approximately two hours to complete, at no cost to the customer.
