Toyota and Lexus Recall Certain Model Year 2018 and 2017 Vehicles

April 03, 2018

PLANO, Texas, April 3, 2018 - Toyota Motor North America, Inc. today announced that it is conducting a safety recall in the U.S. of approximately 6,000 Model Year 2018 Camry and Highlander vehicles and Model Year 2017 Sienna, Tacoma and Lexus RX350 vehicles.

The involved vehicles are equipped with a vacuum pump assembly, which provides braking assist. A component in the vacuum pump assembly may have been manufactured incorrectly. This condition could lead to the illumination of a warning light, a warning message, an audible tone, and result in the sudden loss of braking assist. A sudden loss of braking assist while driving could increase the risk of a crash.

For all involved vehicles, Toyota and Lexus dealers will replace the vacuum pump with a new one at no cost to customers. All known owners of all the involved vehicles will receive a notification by first class mail by late May.
