Toyota Motor PH Issues Recall For Select RAV4 HEV And Lexus NX HEV Models

Toyota Motor Philippines is announcing a recall on selected Toyota RAV4 and Lexus NX models due to its brake actuator software.

The Special Service Campaign affects 40 Lexus NX HEV models produced from November 17, 2021 to March 31, 2022, and 92 Toyota RAV HEV models produced from December 1, 2021 to April 1, 2022.

According to Toyota, these vehicles may have an incorrectly programmed Skid Control ECU software wherein when the driver turns off the Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), the VSC may not return to its default on setting at the next ignition cycle.

If the VSC does not default to the on setting, a warning light will still illuminate on the dashboard prompting the driver to re-engage VSC. However, if the driver fails to notice the warning light, the vehicle will be operating with an inoperative VSC system.

This condition, according to the carmaker, is non-compliant with some applicable regulations in some countries.

Authorized Toyota and Lexus dealerships will re-program the Brake Actuator ECU and will be performed at no cost to owners.


  1. Good thing the recall is prompt.
    Unlike what Hyundai and Kia did in the US (just stating facts).

  2. Recalls are always prompt.
    There's a certain timeframe required by law to publish recalls. Otherwise its millions of dollars penalty.

    1. Thank you sa info. Sana nga strict ang implementation ng batas for the safety of vehicle owners.
