Toyota is recalling approximately 458,000 model-year 2022 Lexus LX, Lexus NX HEV, Lexus NX PHEV, Toyota RAV4 HEV, 2021-2022 Lexus LS HEV, Toyota Mirai, RAV4 PRIME, Sienna, Venza, and 2020-2022 Toyota Highlander HEV vehicles. The Skid Control ECU software may not turn on the Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) system when the vehicle is restarted after the driver has disabled the VSC system, increasing the risk of a crash.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on May 16, 2022. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 800-331-4331 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To resolve the issue, dealers will update the Skid Control ECU software.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
