Power steering problems in Toyota Corolla not applicable in Malaysia

A statement released by UMW states “This is due to the different body and size, thus different components used as compared with models in the U.S. We would like to reaffirm and emphasise to our customers in Malaysia that all Toyota Corolla models sold by us are not affected by this issue,” UMW also added that the recall of the Toyota Tacoma pick ups in the United States due to the drive shaft problem would not affect the Malaysian market because it is a totally different model as compared to the Hilux model sold by them. “The drive shaft used in our pick-up model is different from the one used in Toyota Tacoma,”
