Starting Dec. 7, Tianjin FAW Toyota Motor Co., Ltd. began to recall 13,048 Corolla GL-i model vehicles manufactured between March 19 and Oct. 16, according to a statement from the State Administration for Market Regulation.

Beams from the headlights may not be appropriately adjusted by the ECU when the rear of the vehicle is lowered due to backseat being fully loaded with passengers, which could cause dizziness for drivers coming from the opposite direction, the statement said.

The company will inform related users with registered letters, fix the faulty ECU control software and initialize the height sensor free of charge, it said.
