"Limited Service Campaign" may sound like a euphemism for "quiet recall," but the real meaning is related to the small amount of 2010 Corolla and Matrix models Toyota is calling in for repair. According to Reuters, a total of nearly 11,000 vehicles are affected; about 9,400 Corollas and 1,350 Matrix models equipped with the 2ZR-FE 1.8-liter DOHC four-cylinder engine and assembled in North America during February and March 2010.
The problem apparently lies in the serpentine belt that drives the air conditioning compressor, alternator and water pump. The belt could potentially deteriorate and come loose or detach entirely, which would result in a loss of cooling. Overheated engines could result, and Toyota is expecting to find half of the belts in need of replacement. Owners have started being notified by mail, and the fix takes about 30 minutes.
