Units Affected – 2,087
7 Series: 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008
On certain vehicles equipped with the Comfort Access option, if the driver depresses the start-stop button multiple times in rapid succession, the transmission could shift to Neutral (N) instead of Park (P). If the driver leaves the vehicle without engaging the parking brake, a sufficient slope could cause the vehicle to roll away. A rollaway vehicle could strike another vehicle, stationary object, or a bystander, causing property damage and/or personal injury. Correction: Dealers will reprogram the Central Gateway Control Module with updated software.
Units Affected – 416
7 Series: 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007
On certain vehicles equipped with the Soft Close Automatic, as well as the Comfort Access option, the doors may not latch correctly. Should a door open while the vehicle is underway, an unbelted occupant could fall from the vehicle and sustain personal injury. Correction: Dealers will reprogram the Car Access System Control Module with updated software.
Units Affected – 10
FJ Cruiser: 2011, 2012
On certain vehicles equipped with a Toyota Racing Development (TRD) High-Performance Brake Kit sold and installed by Toyota dealerships, the clearance between the front outer brake tubes and the TRD 16-inch 6-spoke alloy wheels is small. If wheel weights are installed in an incorrect location, the outer brake tubes could be damaged. This could cause a brake fluid leak which could result in a loss of front brake function. In conjunction with traffic and road condition, and the driver’s reactions, this could increase the risk of a crash causing property damage and/or personal injury. Correction: Dealers will replace both front outer brake tubes with updated versions.
