Toyota is recalling around 16,890 vehicles over two seperate issues.
The first recall affects 4,170 Toyota RAV4s, 90 Lexus RX350s and 12,400 Lexus ES350 models, all from the 2016 model year.
In these vehicles, a part inside the brake actuator, which controls the anti-lock brake system, traction control and stability control, was manufactured incorrectly. This can cause the actuator to work incorrectly, leading to the loss of stability control.
A Toyota technician will inspect the serial number on the actuator and replace it if it was produced during a specified time period.
In a second recall action, Toyota is bringing back about 230 Sienna minivans from the 2016 model year to fix incorrect front seat belt heigh adjusters. In a severe crash, these height adjusters could seperate, causing the seatbelt to not restrain properly.
Dealers will replace the heigh adjusters free of charge to the consumer.
