Toyota and its luxury subsidiary, Lexusto be remember 460,000 electric vehicle models were built for the 2020-2022 model years to address an issue that could cause the vehicle’s stability control system to fail to activate at start-up.

The good news for owners is that this is a compliance issue, not something that could pose an immediate danger to vehicle occupants.

Notably absent here is based on Tundra truck with the new iForce Max mixture, although Toyota may have addressed the problem in those models before they were even released. On the other hand, the LX 600 – a pure ICE model at the moment – has fallen into the error pool.
Toyota says owners will receive notice before the end of June.
