PLANO, Texas (July 24, 2019) – Toyota is conducting a safety recall involving certain 2019 Model Year Prius, RAV4 Hybrid, 2019-2020 Model Year Prius Prime, 2020 Model Year Corolla Hybrid and Lexus 2019 Model Year UX 250h, ES300h, LC 500 and LS 500/500h in the United States. Approximately 6,900 vehicles are involved in this recall.
In the subject vehicles, there is a possibility the brake booster pump may have been manufactured improperly, and in some cases, it may stop operating. If the brake booster pump stops operating, multiple warning lights and messages will illuminate, and/or audible chimes will sound.
In this condition, braking assist could be lost completely after several brake pedal applications, resulting in increased stopping distance. In addition, the Vehicle Stability Control will become deactivated, and other vehicle features could be affected. Deactivating the Vehicle Stability Control system may cause the subject vehicles to not meet certain requirements of FMVSS No. 126. A deactivated Vehicle Stability Control or a sudden and complete loss of braking assist while driving could increase the risk of a crash.
For all involved vehicles, based on the vehicle identification number or an inspection, Toyota/Lexus dealers will replace the brake booster pump, if necessary, with a new one at no cost to customers. Owners of all involved vehicles will be notified by first class mail by the middle of September.
