Toyota Motor North America is recalling 671 model year 2016 Avalon and Camry Hybrids.
The vehicles' front drive shaft assembly may have been misassembled. This could cause vehicle vibration and certain components in the drive shaft assembly to separate, resulting in a loss of propulsion while driving and the transmission not holding the vehicle when shifted into the Park position.
A loss of propulsion while driving at higher speeds could increase the risk of a crash.
In addition, if the driver exits the vehicle without applying the parking brake, the vehicle could roll away with the transmission in Park, increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
Toyota dealers will check the serial numbers of both front drive shafts. If necessary, they will be replaced with new ones at no cost to customers.
Owners with questions may contact Toyota customer service at 1-800-331-4331.
