US NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID: 14V054000
Mfg's Report Date: FEB 12, 2014
Component: ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL , SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC
Potential Number Of Units Affected: 261,114


Summary:
Toyota is recalling certain model year 2012 and 2013 Toyota Tacoma and Lexus RX350 vehicles and certain model year 2012 Toyota Rav4 vehicles. In the affected vehicles, the brake system contains a brake actuator that adjusts the fluid pressure of each wheel cylinder. An electrical component within the actuator may experience an increased resistance resulting in the illumination of various warning lights, including those for the Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) system, Antilock Brake System (ABS), and Traction Control system.

Consequence:
If this occurs, these systems could become inoperative, reducing the directional control assistance, increasing the risk of a crash.

Remedy:
Toyota will notify owners, and Toyota and Lexus dealers will update the software for the Skid Control electronic control unit, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin early April 2014. Owners may contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.

Notes:
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
