During the production process, a number of such received rotors of the gas distribution mechanism with an excessive anti-corrosion coating. Toyota contacts the owners of the affected tacos. In a press release, the company said that failure of the rotor of the gas distribution mechanism can lead to uneven operation, misfire or stalling – the latter of them can increase the risk of an accident due to the lack of power steering, brakes and other auxiliary systems, while the engine switched off. Owners will begin to receive notifications starting in mid-July.
