Toyota Kirloskar Motor has made a voluntary recall of 5,834 units of the Toyota Corolla Altis diesel.

The cars affected from the recall are manufactured between June 15, 2010 and May 23, 2011.

Toyota says that there have been no complaints regarding the issue as of now. The precautionary recall will enable the affected customers to get their cars checked for the issue and get the repair done, if necessary, free of charge.
