Toyota recalls 460,000 vehicles due to stability control malfunction
Toyota is recalling about 460,000 vehicles in the United States to fix a software problem that inadvertently disables the electronic stability control system.
The automaker states that in rare cases, the software does not automatically switch the system to “on” mode when the vehicles are restarted. This can cause the system to malfunction, using the system with separate brake wheels to help keep the drivers in control.
This includes the recall of model years from 2020 to 2022, including the Toyota brand Vensa, Mirai, RAV4 Hybrid, RAV4 Prime, Sienna Hybrid and Highlander Hybrid. Also included are the LS500h, LX600, NX350h and NX450h-plus of the Lexus luxury brand.
To fix the problem, dealers will update the software on the skit control computer. Owners will be notified in mid-June.
