I got a recall today for incorrectly manufactured vacuum pump that exists in certain 2017 Sienna’s and 2018 Highlander’s. I saw the Dealer note and it said 5900 vehicles. Lucky me. He was surprised I got a notice already.

That's interesting. I thought the vacuum pump issue is a TSB only. Now it looks like it's a recall. I wonder what VINs are affected?

Care to post a pic of your recall letter?

Thanks

2018 HL Recall - Brake Assist Vacuum Pump may Fail - NHTSA Campaign Number: 18V211000

Thanks @rjg202

Yup... I actually came across the recall press release (see post #96) but forgot about it..

Looks like the HLs affected by this recall are the MY2018 ones produced Early October 2017 – Early November 2017.

Attached are the relevant recall docs for HL from NHTSA website.

Bummer. I'll be watching the mail for my letter since I have an Oct '17 build date and it's not likely that it was built in the first 3 days of the month.

Just an update when to the dealer for 15k service they said there was a recall, I mentioned parts were not available when I was here in May. Long story short the parts person stated they are still waiting on parts back ordered for another vehicle since May. Is this normal not to have parts available? I thought mine were ordered before as well. But I let that go.

Start over at pg. 1.
What an odd response. Toyo2016's post #75 asked if it might not be useful to put all the TSB's in a "list" to make it easier to find them, rather than having to search through all the posts for a particular TSB, and you reply to "start over at pg.1". I see no list at page 1, do you?

I should post this here as well.... Looks like Toyota has decided to make good on the tranny issues! A 2017/2018 UA80e/f Transmission Warranty Enhancement Program called ZJC was announced a few weeks ago and letters are just starting to go out.

All for an improperly bent nut locking tab.... 10 year coverage!

Does anyone have a link to the audio files referenced in this TSB? How loud is this whine noise? Something intuitively obvious or something you have to listen for?
