Safety recall for over 28,000 Toyota LandCruiser and Tundra 4x4s

By Evan Spence 3 Min Read

A safety recall has been issued for certain Toyota LandCruiser 300 and Tundras. This is for units that were built between 10th December 2021 and 12th January 2024. This recall will impact what we believe will result in 28,400 vehicles in the Australian market.


What’s the story?

This recall is due to the design of a clutch disc inside the 10-speed transmission. The brake clutch may not immediately disengage when the vehicle is shifted into neutral. If this occurs when the vehicle is on a flat surface, and if the driver does not apply the service brake or the parking brake, it could allow the vehicle to creep forward at a low speed (up to around 6km/h).

What will the warning signs be? Will there be any?


Are Toyota going to fix it?

Yes, if your vehicle is affected, Toyota will reprogram the transmission ECU software free of charge to vehicle owners. 

Should you still drive?

Toyota says you can continue to drive your vehicle but encourages owners to ensure the brake pedal is applied and the parking brake is engaged when shifting to the “N” position.

Do I need to do anything?

You will need to contact your closest/preferred Toyota dealer to verify if your vehicle is affected and organise for the work to be carried out.
