Recalls for 2016 Toyota Avalon Hybrid 4dr Sdn Limited (Natl)
2016 TOYOTA AVALON HYBRID
NHTSA Campaign ID: 17V462000
Component: POWER TRAIN:DRIVELINE:DRIVESHAFT
Manufacturer: Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing
Manufacture Dates: 01/20/2016 - 02/03/2016
Potential Units Affected: 671
Defect Description:
Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (Toyota) is recalling certain 2016 Camry Hybrid and Avalon Hybrid vehicles. The front drive shaft may separate.
Consequence:
A front driveshaft separation would result in a loss of propulsion while driving, and if the driver exits the vehicle without applying the parking brake, the vehicle may roll. Both scenarios can increase the risk of a crash.
Action to take:
Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will check the serial number of the vehicle's drive shaft, replacing any that are affected, free of charge. The recall began on August 11, 2017. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-800-331-4331. Toyota's number for this recall is H0M.

Component: VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL:ACCELERATOR PEDAL
Manufacturer: Maserati North America, Inc.
Manufacture Dates: 02/01/2013 - 11/30/2015

Defect Description:
Maserati North America, Inc. (Maserati) is recalling certain model year 2014-2016 Quattroporte and Ghibli vehicles manufactured February 1, 2013, to November 30, 2015. In the affected vehicles, the driver-side floor mat anchor may break allowing the floor mat to move and get trapped between the accelerator pedal and the vehicle carpet.
Consequence:
If the floor mat moves and becomes trapped between the accelerator and the vehicle carpet, it may result in very high vehicle speeds, which could cause a crash, serious injury or death.
Action to take:
Maserati will notify owners, and dealers will replace the driver-side floor mat and possibly the accelerator pedal cover, free of charge. The recall began April 29, 2016. Owners may contact Maserati customer service at 1-877-696-2737. Maserati's number for this recall is 301. Note: These vehicles are equipped with a brake override system. In the event a pedal is trapped, pushing on the brake pedal will brake the vehicle and enable the driver to slow and stop and turn off the vehicle.
