Toyota Yaris Problems

Vehicles with a manual transmission may develop an abnormal vibration type noise, most noted when accelerating from a stop or shifting gears. This is generally caused by a faulty engine mount. Damaged engine mounts will require replacement.

The Check Engine Light may illuminate on vehicles with an automatic transmission, with code P0713 stored. This fault code is related to the transaxle fluid temperature sensor. Our technicians tell us a revised transaxle wire harness is available which should correct this concern.

Toyota Yaris Recalls

The springs used on the driver's seat adjustment rails can break. As a result the seat many not properly lock in position. In the event of a crash the driver's seat could move, increasing the risk of personal injury. Dealers will inspect the affected seat rails and replace them as necessary.

The steering column assembly contains electrical connections for the driver's airbag, commonly called the "clock spring". This spiral cable assembly includes a Flexible Flat Cable (FFC). Due to the shape and location of the FFC's retainer, the FFC could become damaged when the steering wheel is turned. If the FFC is damaged, the driver's airbag could be deactivated. The failure of the driver's airbag to deploy when required increases the risk of injury to the driver. When the parts are available, dealers will replace the spiral cable assembly to correct this concern.

Many late model vehicles use electronic controls for the power steering assist. These Yaris vehicles are being recalled because an electrical relay in the power steering control module could short circuit due to moisture contamination, resulting loss of power steering assist. Without power steering assist, the vehicle will become hard to steer, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the power steering control module to correct this concern.

I purchased a new 2008 Toyota Yaris 4-door Sedan. At approximately 36,000 miles I noticed a check engine warning light on my dash board.
