Recalls on your Toyota must be performed by a Toyota dealership. Toyota began notifying known owners of affected vehicles in September, 2014. If you did not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Toyota dealerships. They will also check for any other uncompleted recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
