Toyota has announced that certain vehicles are being recalled for two separate issues.
These recalls are important because they remind us that many issues can be deadly even if they don’t appear as such.
According to the company, its 2017 Tundra pickups and 2018 Tundra and Sequoia SUVs are being recalled for issues that may cause the seats to come off and issues that could lead to a loss of stability control.
The first batch of cars impacted is the trucks.
Over 8,000 Tundra trucks come with second-row seats that could come loose in a crash. If this problem is not resolved quickly, then many occupants could be injured in collisions.
The second recall impacts 65,000 SUVs.
These vehicles come with software that may experience glitches that could turn the stability control as well as other systems off.
Toyota has announced that the software update will be mailed in the middle of this month to all impacted vehicle owners. The company has also claimed that all vehicles with the seat issue will be inspected by dealer staff so the bolts can be can be tightened for free.
