Good news for Malaysian drivers! The Department of Road Transport Malaysia (JPJ) has confirmed that 1.7 million Perodua and Toyota vehicles previously linked to a Daihatsu safety testing scandal are safe. This means there will be no recall for these cars.

Late last year, Daihatsu, a Japanese car manufacturer partially owned by Toyota, was embroiled in a scandal involving "procedural irregularities" during safety testing. This raised concerns about the safety of Perodua and Toyota models in Malaysia that are based on Daihatsu designs.

Following the scandal, Malaysian authorities took swift action. The JPJ conducted a comprehensive review and retested the affected Perodua and Toyota models. This retesting involved a gamut of tests to ensure the vehicles comply with United Nations (UN) safety regulations.

The JPJ's thorough examination and retesting program concluded that all Perodua and Toyota models involved meet the required UN safety standards. This is a positive outcome for Malaysian drivers concerned about the safety of their vehicles.

If you're a Perodua or Toyota owner in Malaysia and you'd like more details on the retesting process or specific results for your car model, you can refer to the JPJ's report (details available upon request).

This news provides peace of mind for owners of the affected Perodua and Toyota vehicles in Malaysia. The JPJ's commitment to safety and their thorough investigation process have ensured that these cars meet the necessary safety standards.
