Toyota Sequoia recalls

 

For Models: Lexus SC430, Pontiac Vibe, Toyota Corolla, Toyota Matrix, Toyota Sequoia, Toyota Tundra

Body, Interior & Misc., June 20, 2014

RepairPal Expert Overview:

This limited regional recall is for vehicles currently registered or first sold in Florida, Puerto Rico, Hawaii and the U.S. Virgin Islands, and equipped with Takata-brand air bag inflators. Upon deployment the driver and/or passenger airbag inflator could rupture, increasing the risk of personal injury. Dealers will replace the affected airbag inflator modules to correct this concern.

For Models: Lexus SC430, Pontiac Vibe, Toyota Corolla, Toyota Matrix, Toyota Sequoia, Toyota Tundra

Body, Interior & Misc., June 11, 2014

RepairPal Expert Overview:

When deployed, excessive pressure can build in the passenger front airbag. This could cause the inflator to rupture, increasing the risk of personal injury to vehicle occupants. This recall affects both originally installed passenger front airbags as well as those that were installed as replacement service parts. Toyota and General Motors will replace the passenger front airbag inflator on their respective vehicles involved in this recall.

For Models: Lexus SC430, Pontiac Vibe, Toyota Corolla, Toyota Matrix, Toyota Sequoia, Toyota Tundra

Body, Interior & Misc., April 11, 2013

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Airbags use a chemical reaction contained in an inflator module to create the pressure necessary to inflate the bags when deployment is required. These vehicles are being recalled because the front passenger airbag inflator may produce excessive internal pressure when deployed. As a result, the inflator module could rupture, causing metal fragments to strike vehicle occupants. Dealers will inspect and replace any defective passenger front airbag inflator module found.

 

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: Toyota FJ Cruiser, Toyota Land Cruiser, Toyota Sequoia, Toyota Tacoma, Toyota Tundra

Suspension & Steering, March 4, 2011

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Due to a calibration error, the tire pressure monitoring system warning light may not illuminate to warn of incorrect tire pressure. Driving with the incorrect tire pressure can result in tire failure, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will re-initialize the tire pressure monitoring system to restore proper operation. Toyota has not provided a notification schedule at this time.

For Models: Toyota Sequoia

Suspension & Steering, June 11, 2010

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The center position of the steering angle sensor (SAS) may not be stored correctly due to improper logic of the skid control ECU programming. The vehicle stability control (VSC) system could activate at a low speed for a few seconds during acceleration from a stopped position. Should this occur, the vehicle may not accelerate as quickly as the driver expects, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will update the ECU software or replace the module as necessary. This recall began on June 11, 2010. The Toyota recall number is AOG.

 

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 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.
