TORONTO, ONTARIO, October 21, 2016 – Toyota Canada Inc. (TCI), announced that it is conducting a safety recall of approximately 601 Model Year 2016 Toyota Highlander vehicles in Canada.

On the involved vehicles, there is a possibility that the wire harness which attaches to the brake fluid reservoir sensor was not connected during the vehicle assembly process. If this were to occur, the vehicle would not meet a federal safety standard provision requiring a warning light if there is a drop in the brake fluid level. If a warning light does not come on to indicate a drop in fluid level, this could increase the risk of a crash.

Toyota dealers will check to ensure the brake fluid level sensor wire harness is properly connected, and connect it if necessary. All known owners of the involved vehicles will be notified by first class mail.

Information about automotive recalls, including but not limited to the list of involved vehicles, is subject to change over time. For the most up-do-date Safety Recall information on Toyota vehicles, customers should check their vehicle’s status by visiting toyota.ca/recall and entering the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). For any additional questions, customer support is also available by calling Toyota Customer Interaction Centre at 1-888-TOYOTA-8 (1-888-869-6828).
