More than 28,000 Toyota models have been recalled over fears an issue with the cars could result in severe injury or death.

The recall affects Toyota Landcruiser models as well as the company’s Tundra models, built between 2021 and 2024.

The Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development, Communications and the Arts issued the recall for the 28,491 vehicles on Tuesday over concerns ‘the transmission control module may not operate as intended’.

‘If this occurs, the automatic transmission may continue to transfer engine power to the wheels when shifted to the neutral position,’ the alert said.

‘If the brake pedal or park brake are not applied it may result in unintended vehicle movement if shift lever is not moved to Park position. 

‘An unintended movement of the vehicle may increase the risk of an accident causing serious injuries or death to vehicle occupants and/or other road users.’ 

Toyota drivers have been urged to make an appointment to update the transmission control module software, free of charge. 

Impacted drivers should also put their cars in park rather than neutral. 

Customers can call Toyota Recall Assist Support Line on 1800 987 366.
