Toyota Recalls Certain Model 86 Vehicles

December 19, 2016
PLANO, Texas, December 19, 2016 – Toyota Motor North America, Inc., announced that it is conducting a safety recall of certain Model Year 2017 Toyota 86 vehicles in the U.S.  Ninety-four vehicles are involved.
 
In the involved vehicles, connectors for the automatic transmission key interlock 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.  Models with a key fob and ignition button are not affected.
 
All known owners of the involved vehicles will be notified by first class mail starting in January and 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.
