Toyota's huge sales stop enters third week: RAV4 hybrid, Corolla hatch, Camry and Prius still being investigated over brake defect

Toyota's multi-model sales stop continues

Toyota's mass sales stop has entered its third week, with the company's investigations continuing into a brake defect uncovered in some of the brand's most popular models. 

The brand issued a sales halt across certain Camry, Corolla Hatch, RAV4 Hybrid and Prius models, while the Lexus ES and UX have also been impacted. It is understood the halt was first issued on June 14

The brand had uncovered a braking defect, which is still being investigated by Toyota, as the multi-model sales stop enters its third week.

But it is understood models are now being cleared on a car-by-car basis, with pre-delivery inspections taking place to allow some sales to continue. When the stop will be entirely lifted remains to be seen, with Toyota's internal investigation not yet complete.  

"Toyota Australia has put a selected number of vehicles on a temporary sales stop, as a precautionary measure, to ensure consistency of manufacturing amongst those vehicles," Toyota told CarsGuide this week.

"A pre-delivery inspection will be conducted prior to sale to avoid any inconvenience to customers."
