Toyota is recalling approximately 41,544 model-year 2021 Venza Hybrid vehicles. Water may enter the rear turn signal LED lights, allowing condensation to form on the circuit board, potentially causing a short circuit. A short circuit can cause dimming or failure of the turn signals and hazard lights, reducing the vehicle’s visibility to other drivers and increasing the risk of a crash.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on March 19, 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 replace both rear turn signal LED bulbs and replace the rear turn signal light assembly, as necessary.
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.
