Toyota Highlander recalls

 

For Models: Pontiac Vibe, Toyota Corolla, Toyota Highlander, Toyota Matrix, Toyota RAV4, Toyota Tacoma, Toyota Yaris

Body, Interior & Misc., April 9, 2014

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The steering column assembly contains electrical connections for the driver's airbag, commonly called the "clock spring". This spiral cable assembly includes a Flexible Flat Cable (FFC). Due to the shape and location of the FFC's retainer, the FFC could become damaged when the steering wheel is turned. If the FFC is damaged, the driver's airbag could be deactivated. The failure of the driver's airbag to deploy when required increases the risk of injury to the driver. When the parts are available, dealers will replace the spiral cable assembly to correct this concern.

For Models: Scion FR-S, Scion tC, Scion xB, Scion xD, Toyota 4Runner, Toyota Camry, Toyota Camry Hybrid, Toyota Corolla, Toyota FJ Cruiser, Toyota Highlander, Toyota Highlander Hybrid, Toyota Land Cruiser, Toyota Prius, Toyota RAV4, Toyota Sequoia, Toyota Sienna, Toyota Tacoma, Toyota Tundra, Toyota Venza

Body, Interior & Misc., April 9, 2013

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Vehicles have a tire size/weight rating label to inform owners of the carrying capacity of their vehicle. These models are being recalled because the incorrect vehicle weight rating is shown on the information label. This could result in vehicle and tire overloading, increasing the risk of tire failure. Owners will be provided an updated vehicle weight label to correct this concern.

For Models: Pontiac Vibe, Scion xB, Scion xD, Toyota Camry, Toyota Camry Hybrid, Toyota Corolla, Toyota Highlander, Toyota Highlander Hybrid, Toyota Matrix, Toyota RAV4, Toyota Sequoia, Toyota Tundra, Toyota Yaris

Electrical & Lights, October 10, 2012

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Toyota and General Motors are recalling certain models because the power window master switch assembly in some of these vehicles was built using a less precise process for lubricating the internal components of the switch assembly. Irregularities in this lubrication process may cause the power window master switch assemblies to malfunction and overheat. This could result in the switch melting or possibly catching fire. Dealers will inspect and repair or replace the master window switch as necessary.

For Models: Lexus ES330, Lexus RX330, Lexus RX400h, Toyota Avalon, Toyota Camry, Toyota Highlander, Toyota Highlander Hybrid, Toyota Sienna

Engine, November 9, 2011

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The amount of adhesive applied between the inner and outer parts of the crankshaft pulley may be inadequate. If this is the case, the outer ring may become misaligned and/or not properly rotate with the inner ring, causing an abnormal noise and/or illumination of the Check Engine Light. In some cases, the power steering belt could come off resulting in a loss of power steering assist, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the crankshaft pulley and replace it if necessary.

For Models: Toyota Highlander, Toyota Highlander Hybrid, Toyota RAV4

Body, Interior & Misc., April 21, 2011

RepairPal Expert Overview:

One or both sensors designed to detect vehicle roll angle may fail, resulting in illumination of the airbag waring light and suspension of the roll detection system. If both sensors were to fail under certain conditions, the curtain shield airbag and seat belt pretensioner could be inadvertently activated. Inadvertent activation of airbag components can result in injury to vehicle occupants. Dealers will replace the airbag sensor assembly with a new one containing improved roll rate sensors. This recall is scheduled to begin during May 2011.

For Models: Lexus RX330, Lexus RX350, Lexus RX400h, Toyota Highlander, Toyota Highlander Hybrid

Body, Interior & Misc., February 24, 2011

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The floor carpet cover may interfere with the accelerator pedal if its forward retention clip is not installed properly. As a result, the throttle can become stuck in a partially open position, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the carpet cover with a newly designed one. No owner notification schedule has been provided at this time.

For Models: Scion tC, Scion xB, Toyota 4Runner, Toyota Avalon, Toyota Camry, Toyota Camry Hybrid, Toyota Celica, Toyota Corolla, Toyota FJ Cruiser, Toyota Highlander, Toyota Highlander Hybrid, Toyota Land Cruiser, Toyota Matrix, Toyota Prius, Toyota RAV4, Toyota Sequoia, Toyota Sienna, Toyota Solara, Toyota Tacoma, Toyota Tundra, Toyota Venza, Toyota Yaris

Body, Interior & Misc., May 27, 2010

RepairPal Expert Overview:

These vehicle were sold without the required load carrying captivity modification label. Dealers will mail the corrected label to vehicle owners. Owners have the option of requesting that the dealer install the label. This recall is expected to begin on May 27, 2010.

For Models: Scion tC, Scion xA, Scion xB, Scion xD, Toyota 4Runner, Toyota Avalon, Toyota Camry, Toyota Corolla, Toyota FJ Cruiser, Toyota Highlander, Toyota Land Cruiser, Toyota Matrix, Toyota Prius, Toyota RAV4, Toyota Sequoia, Toyota Sienna, Toyota Tacoma, Toyota Tundra, Toyota Venza, Toyota Yaris

Body, Interior & Misc., May 27, 2010

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Southeast Toyota is recalling 2005–2011 models for failing to comply with federal safety standards on tire selection and rims. Affected models were sold without the proper load-carrying capacity modification labels, which may cause the driver to overload the vehicle, increasing the chance of a crash. Dealers will mail the correct labels to the customer or install the label free of charge.

For Models: Toyota Corolla, Toyota Highlander, Toyota Highlander Hybrid, Toyota Matrix, Toyota Venza

Body, Interior & Misc., March 30, 2010

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Toyota is recalling certain 2008-2010 Highlander, and 2009-2010 Corolla, Venza, and Matrix models because an unsecured or incompatible floor mat may cause the accelerator pedal to get stuck in the wide open position. This can cause high vehicle speeds and may make the vehicle difficult to stop, which can lead to a crash. Toyota will modify or replace the accelerators on the affected vehicles.

For Models: Toyota Avalon, Toyota Camry, Toyota Camry Hybrid, Toyota Corolla, Toyota Highlander, Toyota Highlander Hybrid, Toyota Matrix, Toyota RAV4, Toyota Sequoia, Toyota Tundra

Body, Interior & Misc., February 5, 2010

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Toyota is recalling 2005–2010 Avalon; 2007–2010 Camry, 2009–2010 Corolla, Corolla Matrix, and Rav4; 2010 Highlander; 2008–2010 Sequoia; and 2007–2010 Tundra models because the sliding surface of the friction lever may become smooth during operation, which can cause condensation. This may cause the accelerator pedal to become harder to depress, slower to return, or to become stuck in a partially depressed position, which can increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will install a reinforcement bar in the accelerator pedal so it will operate smoothly.
