Faulty Brake Actuators Can Cause a Loss of Stability Control

Some brand new Toyota and Lexus vehicles have left the factory with busted brake actuators:

Toyota says it’s possible a component inside the actuator could have been damaged during manufacturing and could cause a loss of vehicle stability control.

I sure wish they could have stopped this before leaving the factory. I mean, these cars are brand new! When will owners catch a brake? (sorry folks, bad puns are part of the deal)

Toyota says your local dealer will need to check the serial number of your brake actuator to see if it needs replacement. For a full list of affected vehicles, visit our site.
