Toyota Motor North America is recalling approximately 6,000 model year 2018 Camrys and Highlanders and model year 2017 Siennas, Tacomas and Lexus RX350s.
A component in the vacuum pump assembly which provides braking assist may have been manufactured incorrectly. This condition could lead to the illumination of a warning light, a warning message, an audible tone, and result in the sudden loss of braking assist.
A sudden loss of braking assist while driving could increase the risk of a crash.
What to do
Toyota and Lexus dealers will replace the vacuum pump with a new one at no cost to customers.
All known owners of all the involved vehicles will receive a notification by first class mail by late May.
Owners may contact Toyota at 800-331-4331 or Lexus at 800-255-3987.
