02V268
On certain passenger vehicles, if the vehicle is driven under repeated start and stop operation in low ambient temperatures and in deep snow, there is a possibility that snow could accumulate in large quantities inside the rear wheel and freeze. The snow frozen inside the wheel could contact the rear brake line during wheel rotation. If this condition occurs frequently, the rear brake line could be damaged, which could result in leakage of brake fluid, causing a decrease in brake effectiveness.
Dealers will replace the rear brake lines.The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during November 2002. Owners should contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.

Component not known


02V208
On certain sport utility vehicles, there is a breather hose that attaches to the nozzle of the on-board refueling vapor recovery (ORVR) valve, which is located on the topside of the fuel tank. The breather hose is attached with a clamp, whose "tabs" face in the upward direction. When the vehicle was crashed under the New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) (i.e., a 35 mph frontal barrier crash), the clamp "tabs" contacted the underside of the body due to movement of the fuel tank, causing the nozzle to break. Nozzle breakage could result in fuel leakage if the vehicle rolls over after a high speed frontal crash.
Dealers will rotate the specified clamp. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during September 2002. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.

01V228
On certain sport utility vehicles, the reservoir filler cap of the brake master cylinder may induce a vacuum, introducing some air into the brake master cylinder reservoir. This could cause abnormal brake noise and increased pedal stroke when the brakes are applied. The increased pedal stroke will lengthen the stopping distance of the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
Dealers will bleed the air from the brake lines and replace the reservoir filler cap. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began July 30, 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.
