Earlier today, Toyota announced that they will be recalling approximately 112,500 vehicles for a wide range of issues. Included in the recall are the 2015 Camry, Camry Hybrid, and Highlander vehicles. Also included are Rav4 EV vehicles from the model year 2012-2014.
In their official announcement, Toyota said, “In the involved Camry, Camry Hybrid, Highlander, Highlander Hybrid and RAV 4 vehicles, a circuit board for the electric power steering (EPS) may have been damaged during its manufacturing process. This can result in the loss of power steering assist; an instrument panel warning lamp will also come on. Manual steering is maintained, but the loss of power steering assist results in increased steering effort at low vehicle speeds and increases the risk of a crash.”
Another malfunction associated with today’s recall has to do with RAV4 EV. According to the company, the vehicle has been known to randomly shift into the “neutral” gear because of a software issue.
Toyota said their have been no injuries or deaths linked with today’s recall, and that all vehicle owners will receive a notification via mail on impending repairs.
