GREAT BURGH, U.K. – TOYOTA has issued an urgent safety recall for more than 2,500 models of one of the firm’s most popular vehicles – the Hilux – after fears a braking problem can lead to a safety risk.

In a statement to Express.co.uk, a Toyota spokesperson said: “Toyota is conducting a safety recall on its Hilux model affecting 2,638 vehicles in the UK market manufactured between June 2018 and October 2019.

“The issue involves the brake boosters that may have pistons with reduced strength due to improper molding of the resin pistons.

“As a result, the piston may break by repeated operation of the brake pedal, and in the worst case, the braking assist may be lost while driving, which results in extended vehicle stopping distance.
