US NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID: 00V256
Potential Number Of Units Affected: 4,530


Summary:
On certain passenger vehicles registered in the states of Alaska, Colorado, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New York, North Dakota, South Dakota, Vermont, Wisconsin, and Wyoming, condensed moisture from the Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) port could seep toward the brake vacuum port inside the intake manifold at freezing ambient temperatures and start to freeze. Vacuum assist to the brakes would decrease and increased pedal pressure would be required, increasing the vehicle stopping distance.

Remedy:
Dealers will repair the vacuum port. Also, owners of the subject vehicles in states other than the recall states will be notified of the recall. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification was to begin during October 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.

Dates of Manufacture:
August 1999 - March 2000
