Transmission Issue Affecting 28,000 New Toyota, Lexus Vehicles in Canada

Published on February 23, 2024 in Recalls by The Car Guide

Toyota is recalling approximately 280,000 vehicles in the U.S. and just over 28,000 in Canada to address a transmission issue that can let the vehicles creep forward while in neutral.

The recall affects certain Toyota Tundra pickups and Lexus LX 600 SUVs from the 2022-2024 model years, as well as some 2023-2024 Toyota Sequoia SUVs.

Toyota said Wednesday that certain parts of the automatic transmission may not immediately disengage when shifted into neutral, meaning some engine power can be tranferred to the wheels. The vehicles could creep forward at low speeds on flat surfaces if the brakes aren't applied, increasing the risk of a crash.

The company didn't say whether there have been any accidents or injuries.

For all affected vehicles, Toyota and Lexus dealers will update the software for the transmission at no cost to customers. Owners will be notified by late April.
