FAQs for 2003 Toyota Sequoia Recall
1. Which models are affected by the recall?
Approximately 50,000 early 2003 model year Toyota Sequoia sport utility vehicles are involved in this voluntary safety recall.
In limited situations, the Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) system could activate at low speed (approximately 9 mph) for a few seconds after acceleration from a stopped position. As a result, the vehicle may not accelerate as quickly as the driver expects.
Toyota will voluntarily recall 2003 Sequoia’s in order to upgrade program logic in its Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) system.
Importantly, Toyota published a Technical Service Bulletin to address this issue when it was first identified in fall 2003. Since that time, Toyota has been responding to individual owner concerns by replacing the Skid Control Engine Control Unit (ECU) in Sequoias impacted by this condition. Of the approximately 50,000 vehicles included in this recall, approximately half have already been serviced under warranty.
4. Is it safe to continue driving my vehicle until it has been repaired?
Toyota has received no reports of injuries or accidents related to this issue, and believes that early 2003 Sequoia vehicles are safe to drive under normal conditions.
Starting in late May, Toyota will begin mailing letters to all 2003 Model Year Sequoia owners included in this recall, including owners of vehicles that have been previously serviced.
