Plano, TX – March 11, 2022 – Toyota (NYSE:TM) is recalling 36,558 2021 Toyota C-HR SUVs because their pre-collision warning systems may malfunction, increasing the risk of a crash and injury.
Vehicles that are part of this Toyota recall have a range of driver assistance features, including the so-called pre-collision system (PCS). This safety system uses a camera and radar sensor to scan the road in front of the vehicle. If any obstacles are detected, it will warn the driver and even stop the vehicle if necessary.
On certain Toyota C-HR 2021 models, the radar sensor may not have been activated during the assembly of the vehicle. With it being inoperable, the PCS may fail to “notice” a potential obstacle and will not know it is inoperative.
The component in question is the “millimeter-wave radar sensor,” with part number 88210-F4070.
Without PCS, the driver is at a higher risk of a collision.
Other Toyota recalls
The 2021 Toyota C-HR is not subject to any other recalls.
Separately, in December of last year, over 220,000 Toyota Camry sedans were recalled due to the loss of power brake assistance, also as reported.
Dealers will inspect the radar and ensure that it is properly set up. This repair will be done free of charge. Notifications to vehicle owners with more information will be sent by mail between April 11, 2022, and April 25, 2022.
