— A 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback transmission recall has been ordered for 3,400 cars that need their continuously variable transmissions (CVTs) replaced.
The problem is the torque converter that can fail in the CVT and cause the car to lose motive power at any speed.
The only way to fix the problem is to replace the transmission with a new one that doesn't have a defective torque converter.
Toyota says it doesn't have enough replacement CVTs, so 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback owners won't be notified about the recall until the middle of February 2019.
Other than that, the automaker said nothing more about the recall.
Toyota Corolla Hatchback owners with questions should call 800-255-3987.
