"The involved vehicles are equipped with a brake actuator assembly that enables enhanced brake control functions, including the antilock braking system, traction control and vehicle stability control, among others," Toyota said in a statement. "There is a possibility that a component inside the actuator could have been damaged during manufacturing, preventing the actuator from operating properly.
"This could cause a loss of vehicle stability control, increasing the risk of a crash."
When asked by Edmunds if there are any injuries, accidents or fatalities linked to the recall, Toyota spokeswoman Amanda Rice wrote: "We are not providing specifics at this time."
No information about the recall has been posted on the website of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which oversees vehicle safety in the U.S.
Edmunds says: Owners of these vehicles should wait for their official recall notice and then schedule a service appointment with their dealer. Those with an immediate concern should contact their dealer now.
