Please use the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) Website to submit a Safety Problem on a Toyota Vehicle.

Have you experienced a vehicle, tire, car seat, or equipment safety problem that could be a safety defect?
If so, you can file a complaint that we will carefully review — like we do with every safety problem submitted to NHTSA.

What is a safety-related defect?
Generally, a safety defect is a problem that poses a risk to motor vehicle safety, and may exist in a group of vehicles or equipment of the same design and/or manufacturer. An example of a safety-related defect is a steering component that breaks, causing a driver to lose control. However, an air conditioner that does not work properly isn't considered a safety-related defect, because it does not pose a risk to motor vehicle safety.

Why is it important to file a complaint?
Complaints like yours help us investigate possible defects, which could lead to a safety recall. By reporting your problem, you're helping to keep vehicles — and ultimately our roads — safe.
