On certain sport utility vehicles, the reservoir filler cap of the brake master cylinder may induce a vacuum, introducing some air into the brake master cylinder reservoir. This could cause abnormal brake noise and increased pedal stroke when the brakes are applied. The increased pedal stroke will lengthen the stopping distance of the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
Dealers will bleed the air from the brake lines and replace the reservoir filler cap. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began July 30, 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.
