PLANO, Texas (Jan. 26, 2022) – Toyota is conducting a noncompliance recall involving certain model year 2021 Venza hybrid vehicles in the U.S. Approximately 42,000 vehicles are involved in this recall.
The rear turn signal lamp bulbs in the involved vehicles can temporarily become dim or deactivate after exposure to conditions such as heavy rain or car washing that causes condensation to form in the rear turn signal lamp. This condition may not meet certain Federal safety requirements and may cause drivers in following vehicles to not know that the turn signal or the hazard lights have been activated, leading to an increased risk of a crash.
For all involved vehicles, Toyota dealers will replace both rear turn signal LED bulbs with improved ones, and if necessary, replace the rear turn signal lamp assembly to fit with the improved bulb at no cost to customers.
Owners of involved vehicles will be notified by late March 2022.
