TORONTO, Ontario – November 23, 2021 – Toyota is conducting a safety recall involving certain 2021 model year Tundra and 2021-2022 model year Sequoia in Canada. Approximately 1194 vehicles are involved in this recall.
The subject vehicles have a power steering system that makes it easier to turn the steering wheel, especially at lower speeds. Due to a manufacturing error, a component of this system can leak power steering fluid. If a sufficient amount leaks, power steering assist can be suddenly lost. While manual steering remains functional, the loss of power steering assist may increase the steering effort needed and can increase the risk of a crash.
For all involved vehicles, Toyota dealers will inspect the power steering gear assembly and if necessary, replace it with a new one at no cost to customers.
Owners of involved vehicles will be notified by late January 2022.
