Toyota Motors, the official representative of the Toyota automaker in the Russian market, takes aside 47,007 Lexus and Toyota cars. The reason for the recall is possible problems with the operation of the data transfer module software. This is reported by Rosstandart.

In particular, in case of serious accidents, there are risks that the car will not be able to receive a callback from the automated emergency response information system in case of accidents. In addition, the latest vehicle location data may not be saved if the ignition is turned on a few minutes after switching off. In this regard, data may be transmitted incorrectly to the emergency response system in case of accidents. "The data transmission module will be reprogrammed on all cars", - the press service of Rosstandart reported.
