Shanghai. October 15 ( - FAW-Toyota said it will recall 21,685 Coaster passenger vehicles sold in China, Chinese media reported today.

Starting October 15, FAW-Toyota will begin to recall Coaster passenger vehicles made between Febuary 1, 2001 through May 31, 2007.

The reason for this recall is related to the rear stabilizer bar, which may hurt a brake line when a driver tries to make a sharp turn while his car is running very fast. In the worst case, the hurt to the brake line may cause the leak of brake line, which is very dangerous on highway.

FAW-Toyota in Sichuan province offered to fasten the rear stablizer bar for its Coaster customers free of charge.
