Among the 65 recalls the NHTSA has announced this February comes news of the following:

Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (“Toyota”) has recalled an estimated 64,901 model year 2018 Toyota Tundra and Toyota Sequoia vehicles. Electrical interference within the power supply circuit may cause the vehicle’s electronic stability control system to be deactivated. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (“FMVSS”) number 126, “Electronic Stability Control Systems.”

According to the NHTSA, deactivation of the vehicle stability control system can increase the risk of a crash in certain conditions.

What to do next? Toyota will notify registered owners, and dealers will update the vehicle’s software, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin March 12, 2018. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-888-270-9371. Toyota’s number for this recall is J0H.
