The recall was issued due to a faulty Pre-Collision system. The cars to be recalled consist of the 2013-2015 Avalon and the Avalon Hybrid. The recall will also encompass the Lexus ES350, and ES 300h. The faulty Pre-Collision system of the vehicles could result in a potential accident.
Toyota revealed the safety aid could misidentify a steel joint or plate in the road as a hazard. The misinterpretation can cause the Toyota vehicle to apply the brakes. The application of brakes suddenly and unexpectedly can cause a crash.
Toyota spokesperson Cindy Knight revealed two accidents in the US have been linked to the issue. The accidents have also allegedly resulted in injuries but no fatalities. Toyota is taking the matter very seriously.
Toyota firstly plans to disable the Pre-Collision system on the sedans. Toyota dealers will then replace the parts with improved components. Owners of the affected vehicles will receive notification of the recall by November 2015.
