A minor manufacturing error has prompted a safety recall for the 2016 Toyota Highlander.
A wire harness for the brake fluid reservoir sensor may not have been connected properly during the assembly process.
“If this were to occur, the vehicle would not meet a federal safety standard provision requiring a warning light if there is a drop in the brake fluid level,” the company said in a statement. “If a warning light does not come on to indicate a drop in fluid level, this could increase the risk of a crash.”
Service technicians will simply inspect the crossover to make sure the harness is properly connected.
The campaign is limited to a batch of approximately 7,100 vehicles sold in the US market.
