Toyota Venza RecallsSeat Heater
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.
As part of normal operation of the air conditioning system, condensation will accumulate in the condenser housing behind the dashboard. A drain is incorporated so that excess water can drain out. This drain hose can become plugged, the accumulated water can leak onto the airbag control module. This can result in an electrical short in the control module. If this were to occur the airbags could become disabled or deploy unexpectedly. Improper airbag operation increases the risk of personal injury and/or a crash. The power steering assist could also become inoperable resulting in increased steering effort. Dealers will seal the air conditioning condenser housing and install a protective cover on the airbag control module to correct this concern.
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.
