On certain vehicles, material in the nut used to secure the sensor-transmitter of the tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) may corrode and crack in areas with heavy concentrations of road salt. If this occurs, the nut may come out of the sensor, causing a rapid loss of air pressure. Dealers will replace the nut with a revised version.

2006-2010 Lexus IS 350

On certain vehicles, the accelerator pedal may become stuck in the wide-open position due to an unsecured or incompatible driver’s floor mat. Toyota will notify owners of affected vehicles to remove any driver’s floor mat and not replace it with any other floor mat, pending the development of model-specific remedies.

Vehicles affected: 93,931

On certain vehicles located in Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland and Labrador, the sensing and diagnostic module (SDM) may corrode due to a significant quantity of snow and/or water containing road salt or other contaminants entering the vehicle and saturating the acoustical padding beneath the floor carpet. If sufficient moisture collects and is retained in the padding, it may cause excessive corrosion under the module, compromising its seal and allow water intrusion and system malfunction. This may result in illumination of the airbag readiness light, along with a “Service Airbag” message on the driver information centre and, in certain instances, may cause inadvertent deployment of the seatbelt pretensioner and/or airbag. Dealers will remove the acoustical pad above the SDM.

On certain vehicles, the speed control deactivation switch may overheat, smoke or burn, potentially resulting in an underhood fire.
