Toyota recalls RAV4, Tacoma, and Lexus RX crossovers for circuit defect

See also

Toyota announced another recall today, in conjunction with the global Prius recall, for their Tacoma pickup truck, as well as their RAV4 and Lexus RX 350 crossovers (the RX is built on the Camry platform). In all, approximately 260,000 vehicles will be affected.

The specific vehicles are:

2012 Toyota RAV4

2012-2013 Toyota Tacoma

2012-2013 Lexus RX 350

The reason for the recall has to do with an electronic circuit malfunction, which could inadvertently switch off the vehicle's anti-lock brakes, as well as the traction and stability control systems. All three systems work in conjunction with one another, in order to prevent the vehicle from being involved in an accident. If one, or all three systems were to inadvertently shut off, this would increase the risk of. However, neither Toyota, nor the National Highway Safety Traffic Administration, has reported any accidents or injuries as a result of the electronic defect.

The latest Toyota recall will have the respective owners of the vehicles bringing them into their local Toyota dealership, where they will receive a software update at no charge.
