Daihatsu declared on Wednesday that it would cease shipping all of its vehicles after 64 models were found to have issues.

Daihatsu Motor, a division of Toyota Motor, has chosen to stop production at all of its domestic operations until the end of January, according to a report.

A Daihatsu representative stated that the company was still having internal discussions regarding the issue.

The small car expert announced on Wednesday that it would stop shipping all of its cars following the discovery of problems with 64 models, nearly two dozen of which were sold under the Toyota name, during a safety probe.

The carmaker, which is entirely owned by Toyota, has started shipping again from PT Astra Daihatsu Motor, its Indonesian subsidiary, a spokesman said, noting that this is the only location where the business has done so.

Conglomerate PT Astra International Tbk in Indonesia and Toyota Tsusho also own a stake in the joint venture.
