Toyota Recalls 260,000 Vehicles Over Brake Issue

Toyota announced that it is recalling more than 261,000 vehicles with possible problems with the software of the braking system; this could result in a crash.

The recall affects the 2013 Toyota Tacoma, 2012 Toy0ta RAV4, and the 2012 and 2013 Lexus RX 350. According to this article, “According to Toyota, an electrical component within the actuator that adjusts the fluid pressure for each of the brakes of the affected vehicles may experience an increased resistance.

“This would result in the illumination of various warning lights in the dash, including those for the stability and traction control systems as well as the antilock brakes. If this were to occur, Toyota says that the systems could become inoperative, reducing the directional control assistance during braking, and thus increasing the risk of a crash.”

Toyota will notify owners if they are affected.
