  • Toyota releases another recall!
  • Toyota recalls approximately 31,000 Model Year 2013-2015 Avalon, Avalon Hybrid, Lexus ES350 and ES300h sedans.

More than 31,000 vehicles will be recalled from the Avalon and Lexus lines.

It seems Toyota is always involved in one recall after another. At least we can safely presume the automaker is taking the safety of passengers seriously. Toyota just announced it will recall 31,000 more vehicles.

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.

The notice will provide instructions on how the PCS function will be disabled and removed from the vehicles. The list and information on the recall may be subject to changes over time. As new developments come to light the details may be changed by Toyota.
