2017 Toyota 86 Recalled for Risk of Vehicle Rollaway and Crash
Toyota announced today it is conducting a safety recall of certain MY 2017 Toyota 86 vehicles in the U.S. Toyota says 94 vehicles are involved.
Certain Toyota 86 sports coupes have connectors for the automatic transmission key interlock that may not have been connected during pre-delivery service prior to sale. If this was not connected, it is possible to remove the key in gear positions other than “Park.” This could increase the risk of vehicle rollaway and a crash according to the press release. Models with a key fob and ignition button are not affected.
What should 86 owners do?
Toyota will contact owners by first class mail starting in January, and they will be instructed to return the vehicle to a Toyota dealer to have the ignition key interlock function confirmed, and if necessary, the delivery mode connector will be connected at no charge.
