The recall campaign was announced by Toyota at the end of June this year, as it turned out that electric cars have low-quality wheel bolts, due to which the car may lose wheels while driving. Nearly 3,000 electric vehicles are under recall. The company strongly advised owners to refrain from traveling by electric cars and urged them to be repaired as soon as possible.
However, Toyota did not stop there and offered new options for customers whose cars were part of the recall campaign. Electric car owners, in addition to a free car replacement during the repair of their own, are offered a $5,000 bonus, and they can also receive an extended warranty and free charging at EVgo stations until the end of 2024.
If the client is not satisfied with any of the proposed options, then the company will buy out the electric cars that fell under the recall for at least $42,000, but the final cost of the buyback will be determined by the immediate condition of the vehicle.
