Recent recall Samsung Note 7 had left some who bought from parallel importers in trouble. They have difficult in getting an exchange from the authorised agent.


In such an event as in this case, Prius, what is the recourse for those who bought from parallel importer. If the AD does not entertain those who bought from parallel importer, does the transport department do something? Otherwise if this is a hazard that requires repairs, we will have lots of dangerous vehicles on the road.
