— Toyota is recalling more than 500,000 vehicles because a software error can cause the vehicle stability control system not to default to ON the next time the vehicle is started.
About 460,000 of these recalled vehicles are in the U.S. and 41,000 are in Canada.

The Toyota and Lexus vehicles are equipped with a vehicle stability control system operated by a skid control electronic control unit programmed with a specific software logic.
But Toyota says incorrect programming can cause problems if a driver turns off the stability control and the ignition is turned off and back on while pressing the brake pedal. This will prevent the stability control from activating when the vehicle is restarted.
Toyota says it's a violation of safety standards for the stability control system not to default to ON the next time the vehicle is started.
Toyota recall letters are expected to be mailed May 16, 2022, and dealers will update the skid control electronic control units.
