Runaway Cars: Toyota Canada recalls 28,000 vehicles over transmission flaw; wheels may continue to move while vehicle in neutral

Toronto, Ontario — Toyota Canada is recalling more than 28,000 vehicles due to a transmission problem that can lead to increased collisions, says the auto manufacturer.

Specific models affected by the recall include the 2023 to 2024 model-year Toyota Tundra, Sequoia and Lexus LX 600.

The reason for the recall has to do with certain parts of the transmission that may not immediately disengage when an affected vehicle is in neutral, and which may keep the vehicle’s wheels moving.

As a result, affected vehicles are at risk of creeping forward at a low speed when they are on flat surfaces and no brakes are applied.

Toyota Canada is asking customers to bring their vehicles to Toyota and Lexus dealers for a free software update that should resolve the issue.

Owners with affected vehicles will be notified by late April.

If you have an affected vehicle in your yard, take caution when parking, moving or working on the vehicle.
