Vehicles Affected: Approximately 28,600 model-year 2018 Toyota C-HR SUVs
The Problem: The electronic parking brake may not operate properly, which could cause the parking brake to not disengage after it’s applied or prevent it from being applied, increasing the risk of a crash or injury.
The Fix: Dealers will update the electronic control unit’s software for free.
What Owners Should Do: Toyota will begin notifying owners this month. Owners can call the automaker at 800-331-4331, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit www.safercar.gov to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
