Toyota recalls 460,000 vehicles for stability issues

Toyota is recalling 460,000 vehicles in the U.S. to fix a software problem that can inadvertently disable the electronic stability control system.

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — Toyota is recalling about 460,000 vehicles in the U.S. to fix a software problem that can inadvertently disable the electronic stability control system.

The automaker says that when the vehicles are restarted, in rare cases the software may not automatically switch the system into the “on” mode. That can disable the system, which uses a computer to individually brake wheels to help drivers keep control.
