Toyota is recalling approximately 39,000 model year 2020 Highlanders.
The recalled vehicles are equipped with a feature that stops and restarts the engine. Under certain driving patterns and vehicle conditions, this feature may not operate correctly resulting in a vehicle stall.
If a vehicle stall occurs, an audible chime will sound and multiple warning indicators will illuminate. If a vehicle stall occurs while being driven at higher speeds, this could increase the risk of a crash.
What to do
Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will reflash the engine control unit (ECU) at no cost.
The recall is expected to begin by mid-May 2020.
Owners may contact Toyota customer service at (800) 331-4331.
