Toyota expands application of Brake Override system

A while back, I wrote that Toyota was installing a “brake override” system on its cars.  As it turns out, they’ve also begun adding the system to recalled cars as well as ones in its sales pipeline.  Today, Toyota announced that it would be expanding the lineup of cars receiving the override, to include the Tacoma, Venza and Sequoia.  While the former two are getting the fix when they show up for any of the recalls, Sequoia owners will be sent a letter and will be allowed to schedule a time to get the brake override installed.  Previously, only the Toyota Avalon, Camry, Lexus IS and ES cars were receiving the override system upgrade.  The brake override system ignores gas pedal input when the brakes are pressed, in order to help prevent runaway cars.
