A massive recall on several Toyota models sold in Canada and the U.S. could soon be announced due to a failure of the heated seats to meet certain fireproofing requirements. Built in August 2012 or later, these vehicles use a seat fabric from a new supplier.
While the number of units affected by this possible recall remains unknown, the list of affected models may include:
- Camry hybrid;
- Avalon hybrid;
In related news, the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is investigating the brake assist system on roughly 30,000 Toyota Camry Hybrids from 2007-2008. A potential failure could increase braking distances. Source : ici.radio-canada.ca
