Toyota India has issued a voluntary recall for the Land Cruiser LC300 luxury SUV in the country. In a statement, Toyota said that the 269 units of the Land Cruiser LC300 have been affected by the recall and need to be brought in to update the automatic transmission ECU. The recall affects models that were manufactured between February 12, 2021 and February 1, 2023, the company said.

While it wasn’t officially launched in the country until the end of 2022, the SUV was brought to India by several private importers.

The Toyota Land Cruiser LC300 is the automaker’s flagship SUV and is one of the most capable offerings in its class. The butch-looking offering gets boxy proportions that do little to hide its nearly 5-metre-long length and massive road presence. Power on the SUV comes from the 3.3-litre V6 diesel engine tuned for 305 bhp and 700 Nm of peak torque, paired with the 10-speed automatic transmission sending power to all four wheels. The SUV gets six driving modes, a four-zone climate control, LED lighting, a 12-inch touchscreen infotainment system and more.
