Toyota is recalling certain Sequoia and Tundra vehicles in two separate recalls.

The first recall announced by the Japanese automaker affects approximately 8,800 model year 2017 Toyota Tundra vehicles in the U.S. In the involved vehicles with second row seats, Toyota says there is a possibility that one or more of the bolts attaching the left rear seat to the floor may not have been properly fastened. As a result, it could lead to an increased risk of injury in the event of a crash.

To resolve the issue, Toyota dealers will properly tighten the bolts at no cost to customers. All known owners will be receiving a notification starting in the middle of March.

The second recall affects approximately 65,000 model year 2018 Sequoia and Tundra vehicles in the U.S. In the affected vehicles, there is a possibility a vehicle diagnostic function may unnecessarily turn off the Vehicle Stability Control System, possibly affecting other systems. If this does occur, owners will see warning lights and a message displayed, along with a warning chime that will sound. Turning off Vehicle Stability Control could increase the risk of a crash.

Toyota dealers will update the software in an electronic control unit in the affected vehicles at no cost. Affected owners will also receive a notification starting in the middle of March.
