Toyota is reported to have announced a voluntary recall for more than 1.5 million vehicles across the world in a bid to address a brake fluid leak. The company has claimed that the flaw can result in a gradual decrease in the performance of the braking system.
The automobile giant has claimed that majority of cars called under the voluntary recall are in US and Japan.
The flaw is reported to result in leaking of the brake fluid from the brake master cylinder, which lights up the brake warning lamp.
The company has outlined that UK-registered IS, GS and RX models developed between February 2003 and November 2005 are engulfed by the breaking fault.
As per the reports, the Japanese group has issued a recall to over 2,081 Lexus models in the UK for same issue, in addition to a separate flaw related to the fuel pump on GS 300 models developed between September 2004 and February 2006.
In addition, two other recalls has been issued to over 2,000 Lexus cars in the UK alone.
It is reported that Toyota UK has tied up with Vehicle and Operator Services Agency in a view to guide owners as how to go about getting the fault fixed.
