Toyota North America has announced a safety recall of a number of 2017 Model Year Toyota 86 (known as the GT86 in the UK) vehicles.
Ninety-four cars are involved, all of which have faulty connectors for the automatic transmission key interlock - which 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” which 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.
Information about automotive recalls, including but not limited to the list of involved vehicles, is subject to change over time says Toyota.
