Being the world’s largest manufacturer is a tough job, and no one knows it better than the guys over at Toyota and their numerous customers. Selling cars in huge numbers is indeed a sure road to success, but every automakers needs to take care of any issues that may arise regarding their models.
Fortunately, Toyota is always wide awake when it comes to debugging their products, no matter the country they have been shipped to. So if you’re driving a diesel Altis in India, you might want to know that Toyota wants to inspect it to make sure a driveshaft glitch doesn’t affect your car.

According to the Japanese automaker, the recall campaign, which is only a precautionary measure and not a safety concern, involves about 1,000 vehicles that were assembled from August 2013 through February 2013. Altis diesel customers will be contacted by Toyota and their vehicles checked and eventually repaired free of charge.

“A potential aberration on the left or right side of the driveshaft has been observed in a few cases in the Altis Diesel. We have decided to proactively inspect and repair/replace the drive shafts. This is not a safety concern. This is a precautionary measure to ensure customer satisfaction,” Toyota said in a press release.
