Toyota Recalls Nearly 280,000 Vehicles for Transmission Issue

Toyota is initiating a safety recall for nearly 280,000 vehicles due to a transmission issue. The affected models include the Toyota Tundra, Tundra Hybrid, Sequoia, and Lexus LX 600.


Transmission Issue Prompts Recall

Toyota is recalling nearly 280,000 vehicles due to a transmission issue. The safety recall includes three models: the 2022 to 2024 Toyota Tundra and Tundra Hybrid, the 2023-2024 Toyota Sequoia, and the 2022-2024 Lexus LX 600 vehicles.

The problem arises from certain parts of the transmission not disengaging immediately when the vehicle is in neutral. This can cause the vehicle to continue moving forward on a flat surface if the brakes aren't applied.

Software Update at No Cost

Toyota and Lexus dealers will be updating the transmission software for the affected vehicles at no cost to customers. Vehicle owners will be notified about the update by late April.

To check if their vehicle is recalled, customers can visit or and enter their Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) or license plate information.

Other Recalls by Toyota

Last week, Toyota announced three recalls, including the transmission issue recall. The company also recalled 19,000 Mirai and Lexus LS, LC, and ES models due to software problems that could affect the rearview image.

Additionally, 4,000 Toyota Camry and Camry Hybrid vehicles were recalled over issues with the head restraints that could increase the risk of injury in a crash.
