Toyota is recalling about 6,900 model year 2019 Prius, RAV4 Hybrid, model year 2019-2020 Prius Prime, model year 2020 Corolla Hybrid and Lexus, and model year 2019 UX 250h, ES300h, LC 500 & LS 500/500h vehicles.
There is a possibility the brake booster pump may have been manufactured improperly and -- in some cases -- may stop operating.
If the brake booster pump stops operating, multiple warning lights and messages will illuminate, and/or audible chimes will sound.
In this condition, braking assist could be lost completely after several brake pedal applications, resulting in increased stopping distance.
In addition, the Vehicle Stability Control will become deactivated, and other vehicle features could be affected.
A deactivated Vehicle Stability Control or a sudden and complete loss of braking assist while driving could increase the risk of a crash.
What to do
Owners will be notified by first class mail by the middle of September.
Toyota/Lexus dealers will replace the brake booster pump, if necessary, with a new one at no cost to customers.
Owners may contact Toyota customer service at (800) 331-4331 or the Lexus customer service at (800) 255-3987.
