Toyota recall

Posted: Updated:
NORTH OLMSTED, OH (WOIO) -

There haven't been any incidents to report from Northeast Ohio Toyota drivers concerning the auto manufacturer's latest recall.

Toyota has informed the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that it has stopped sales of certain Avalon, Avalon Hybrid, Camry, Camry Hybrid, Corolla, Sienna, Tacoma and Tundra vehicles equipped with seat heaters.

There's a non-compliance issue with the seat fabric.

The material does not clear flammability standards set by the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS).

The auto maker is preparing a modification for this condition to be addressed on all covered vehicles in dealer inventory.

Metro Toyota service manager Bruce Schad tells 19 Action News, "We have 300 cars in our inventory and there are only 12 we cannot sell."

At Sunnyside Toyota service manager Ray Thomas attests they haven't had any cars or trucks brought in due to potential danger. 

"I couldn't tell you (how many cars and trucks are affected). I'm on the service side. When they come up with a fix they'll tell us what it is," said Thomas.

There haven't been any incidents involving the material around the globe.
