Southeast Toyota is recalling certain vehicles because the seat heater element may become damaged as a result of compression of the seat cushion. The damaged element could short causing burning of the seat cushion, increasing the risk of personal injury. Dealers will disconnect seat heaters with copper strand elements and refund the purchase price of the seat heater accessory to correct this concern.

This limited regional recall is for vehicles currently registered or first sold in southern Florida, along the Gulf Coast, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, Saipan and American Samoa. Upon deployment the passenger airbag inflator could rupture, increasing the risk of personal injury. Dealers will replace the passenger side air bag inflator to correct this concern. If a replacement inflator is not available, as an interim measure, the dealer will disable the front passenger air bag and advise the customer not to use the front passenger seat until a replacement inflator is installed.

We bought our 2002 Sequoia limited and runs great. However, in 2010 we had major issues with the vsc and trac lights and the swervy car light coming on. It came on as I was driving it and it swerved and then stalled- it seemed to be forcing the engine when I tried to at least get it off the road. After several trips and weeks without my car- the toyota dealer said it didn't find anything wrong ...

the vsc and trac lights just come on suddenly at slow to moderate speeds (5-60 mph) and the car swerves violently to the left side and then it tracks straight again. this does not happen again provided the vsc and trac lights are on. But when you turn the engine off, the computer resets itself so when you re-start it happens again. this is so scary and there is no cheap fix to this so i disconn...
