Is there a recall?
No, at least not yet.
Is there a solution?
It hasn\'t been announced yet, but Toyota has solved the problem of the car going offline, so there seems to be some sort of solution.
Now Toyota has to figure out how to make that change for cars that are already on the road.
What should I do?
Of course, the safest thing to do is not drive until the problem is solved.
If you do drive, please pay attention to this issue and allow additional follow distance, and stop a little earlier when red light and parking signs appear, especially if the road is choppy
