Toyota has announced that it is conducting a safety recall of approximately 26,000 Model Year 2013-2016 Scion FR-S vehicles.

In the involved vehicles, connectors for the automatic transmission key interlock on some vehicles may not have been connected during pre-delivery service prior to sale.  If this delivery mode connector is not connected, it is possible to remove the key in gear positions other than “Park”, causing the vehicles not to comply with a portion of Federal/Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 114.  This could increase the risk of vehicle rollaway and a crash.

All known owners of the subject vehicles will be notified by first class mail and instructed to return the vehicle to a Toyota dealer to have the ignition key interlock function confirmed, and if necessary, delivery mode connectors connected at no charge.

Information about automotive recalls, including but not limited to the list of involved vehicles, is subject to change over time.  For the most up-to-date Safety Recall information on Lexus, Toyota and Scion customers should check their vehicle’s status by visiting http://www.toyota.com/recall and entering the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).  Safety Recall inquiry by individual VIN is also available at the NHTSA site:safercar.gov/vin.  For any additional questions, customer support is also available by calling Toyota Customer Service at 1-800-331-4331 or Lexus Customer Service at 1-800-255-3987.
