Got a Toyota Prius? Pay attention if yes, because UMW Toyota Motor has announced a Special Service Campaign (a more customer-pleasing way to say ‘recall’) that involves the hybrid software which needs an update.
UMWT says that this involves 6,160 units of the Prius 1.8 Hybrid manufactured from year 2009 to 2013 sold in Malaysia. This recall serves to provide an additional remedy to the vehicles involved in the previous recall announced in 2014. Although there have not been any reported cases in Malaysia, UMW Toyota Motor will be conducting this Special Service Campaign to ensure their customers’ vehicles remain reliable and at its best performance level.
UMWT will notify all its affected vehicle owners officially to update the ECU programming at no charge. The work should take around an hour.
