Toyota Issues Voluntary Safety Recall on 655 High Performance Brake Kits on 2007-2012 FJ Cruisers

  • Toyota has reported to us that today the following: "Toyota today filed a notice with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that it will conduct a voluntary safety recall of 655 genuine Toyota Racing Development (TRD) High Performance Brake Kits sold in the United States as an optional accessory for 2007 to 2012 Model Year FJ Cruiser Vehicles. Due to the shape of the front outer brake tube (Crossover Tube) of the Brake Kit, the clearance between the outer brake tube and a TRD 16-inch 6-Spoke alloy wheel is small. If wheel balance weights are installed in an incorrect location, there is a possibility that the outer brake tube could be damaged due to interference with the balance weight, and brake fluid could leak from the damaged tube. This could result in increased stopping distance, and in some cases, loss of vehicle front braking performance, which could increase the risk of a crash. The special kits were installed at Toyota vehicle processing centers, at Toyota dealers and sold over the counter. To ensure that over-the-counter accessory sales customers are notified, all owners of 2007-2012 model year FJ Cruisers will be notified by mail.

Toyota

  • Toyota Announces Voluntary Safety Recalls of Camry, Venza, and Tacoma Vehicles. Toyota Motor Sales announced that it will conduct a voluntary safety recall involving certain MY2009 Camry and certain MY2009 to MY2011 Venza vehicles to replace the stop lamp switch. Due to an electrical problem in the switch warning lamps may illuminate, the car may not start, or the shift lever may not shift from "Park" position.

    Certain MY2005 to early 2009 Tacoma vehicles will be recalled to replace the steering wheel spiral cable assembly. Contact between the assembly and a retainer ring may cause the air bag warning light to remain illuminated and may deactivate the driver's airbag, preventing deployment in a crash.
