Toyota Motor North America has announced that it is conducting a safety recall of certain model year 2017 Toyota 86 cars in the US. 94 units are involved.

The issue is that the connectors for the automatic transmission key interlock may not have been connected during pre-delivery service prior to sale. If this was the case, it is possible to remove the key in gear positions other than P, and this could increase the risk of vehicle rollaway and a crash. Models with a keyless entry and push start button are not affected.

All known owners of the involved cars will be notified by first class mail starting and instructed to return the vehicle to a Toyota dealer to have the ignition key interlock function confirmed, and if necessary, the delivery mode connector will be connected at no charge.

Recently, good news came in the form of confirmation that the Toyota 86 will live on, and a second-generation car is being worked on. The Mk2 86 is likely to surface in 2018-2019, and you can read the full story here.
