Toyota Corolla Hatchback — a vehicle that's being recalled

Toyota is recalling about 3,400 of its 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchbacks because of a faulty component in the transmission. If the part fails while the car is in motion, it could cause the vehicle to lose its power. This could increase the risk of a crash—especially if the failure happens when the vehicle is traveling at a high speed, the automaker says.

Toyota says it plans to replace the transmissions in all affected vehicles, and will alert owners as soon as it is ready to make those repairs.

Only Corolla Hatchbacks with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) are included in the recall. The Corolla sedan is not included, nor are hatchbacks that have manual transmissions.
