Toyota Australia Recalls Landcruiser 300 And Tundra Vehicles Due To Transmission ECU Reprogram

Toyota Australia has today announced that it will initiate a safety recall involving certain Toyota LandCruiser 300 and Tundra vehicles produced between 10th December 2021 – 12th January 2024 (inclusive). There are approximately 28,400 vehicles involved in the Australian market.

For involved vehicles, due to an issue in the design of a certain brake clutch disc inside the 10-speed transmission, the brake clutch disc may not immediately disengage when the vehicle is shifted to the neutral position. If this condition occurs when the vehicle is on a flat surface, and if the driver does not apply the service brake or the parking brake, it could allow a vehicle to inadvertently creep forward at a low speed (up to approximately 6 km/h), which could increase the risk of a crash.

For all involved vehicles, Toyota dealers will reprogram the transmission ECU software free of charge to vehicle owners.

Transmission ECU software reprograming will take approximately 30 minutes. Depending on the Dealer's work schedule, owners may be required to make the vehicle available for a longer period of time.

Toyota Australia will contact all owners of involved vehicles to provide details of this safety recall campaign. Owners are asked to keep their contact details up to date with Toyota so future communications can be received.

Owners with additional questions or concerns are asked to please contact their local/preferred Toyota Dealer in the first instance or the Toyota Recall Campaign Helpline on 1800 987 366 (Mon-Fri 8.00am-6.00pm AEST). Please quote your 17-digit Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).
