(TORONTO, ON – November 15, 2017) Toyota Canada Inc., announced that it is conducting a safety recall in Canada of 5,294 Model Year 2018 C-HR vehicles.

In the involved C-HR vehicles, there is a possibility that the electronic parking brake (EPB) may not operate properly. This could cause the parking brake to not disengage after it is applied or prevent it from being applied. If the electronic parking brake cannot be applied, this could result in a potential noncompliance with a federal safety standard. 

For all involved vehicles, Toyota dealers will update an electronic control unit’s software to correct the EPB issue at no cost to customers.  All known owners will receive a notification by first-class mail starting in late-November.

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).
