Toyota Motor North America, Inc. is recalling approximately 6,000 vehicles to fix a vacuum pump assembly issue that could cause sudden loss of brake assist. The recall involves the 2018 Camry and Highlander and model year 2017 Sienna, Tacoma and Lexus RX350.
The involved vehicles are equipped with a vacuum pump assembly, which provides braking assist. A component in the vacuum pump assembly 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.
For all involved vehicles, Toyota and Lexus dealers will replace the vacuum pump with a new one for free. Owners will be notified by first-class mail by late May.
