Oh what a sinking feeling for Toyota Motor Corp. Australia Ltd., as the auto maker orders its dealers to stop selling the new V-6 RAV4 4-wheel-drive cross/utility vehicle as a result of an undisclosed problem.

Media reports suggest there are concerns about the model’s drivability, but a Toyota spokesman says the issue is not safety related, declining to provide further details.

The auto maker continues to feature the CUV, which has a starting price of A$31,990 ($29,400), on its website.

The latest problem arises only days after one of Toyota Motor Corp.’s directors admitted the auto maker’s response to vehicle-quality problems “was not perfect.”

Toyota Executive Vice President Mitsuo Kinoshita tells The Sydney Morning Herald Toyota directors were so concerned about a deterioration in quality levels two years ago that they formed a “customer first” committee to address the problem.

Toyota Australia last month halted sales of its locally developed V-6 Aurion TRD sedan after an engine failed in a dealer’s test vehicle.
