Toyota Recalls

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Toyota is recalling 2001 Avalon, Camry, and Sienna vehicles because the front sub frame assembly has not been adequately welded. This could cause failure of the assembly following long-term usage, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect and replace the front sub frame, if necessary.

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Toyota is recalling certain 2001 Camry models equipped with cruise control and V6 engines because the accelerator cable housing could be deformed at the cruise control actuator-to-throttle body connection. This may cause the accelerator inner-cable to wear and eventually break, allowing the throttle to return to idle or remain in its most recent position, regardless of pedal operation, which increases the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the accelerator cable.
