Toyota Australia has today announced that it will initiate a safety recall on 183 Camry, Corolla, Prius and RAV4 hybrid vehicles sold to consumers that were produced between April 2019 to May 2019.
In the subject vehicles, there is a possibility components of the electronic brake booster pump assembly may have been manufactured improperly. In some cases, the brake booster pump may stop operating. If this occurs, multiple warning lights and messages could illuminate on the instrument panel and audible chimes could sound.
After several brake pedal applications, power brake assist could be lost completely. A loss of power brake assist while driving could increase the vehicle stopping distance and may increase the risk of an accident.
Toyota Dealers will notify all involved vehicle owners about this recall personally by telephone, requesting they make an appointment at their preferred/closest Toyota Dealer to have the vehicle inspected. If owners cannot be reached by telephone, a letter will be sent to their last known address.
Expected commencement timing is July 2019.
For all involved vehicles, Toyota dealers will inspect the brake booster pump and replace it with a new one if necessary, free of charge.
There have been no reported incidents or injuries in Australia or worldwide caused by this condition.
