“A software bug could cause the car’s Stability Control (VSC) system to be disabled by default the next time you start the car under certain circumstances,” Toyota said in a statement last week.
As a result, the affected cars do not comply with federal regulations.

To eliminate this problem, Toyota and Lexus dealers will update the software of the electronic control unit Skid Control.
The skid control computer is a subcomponent of the brake actuator. Japanese carmaker Advics Co., a subsidiary of Aisin Corp., manufactures a brake actuator assembly, according to an NHTSA document.
