The first recall involves about 8,800 Toyota Tundra pickup trucks with a potentially loose second-row seat which, if left unrepaired, could increase the risk of injury to a passenger during a crash.

Affected vehicles include Tundras from model year 2017, NHTSA said. To date, Toyota has received no reports of accidents or injuries associated with the issue.

Dealers will fix the problem free of cost by tightening the bolts that fasten the left rear seat to the floor.

The other recall involves about 65,000 Tundra and Sequoia SUVs from model year 2018 for a software glitch that could disable stability control and other critical systems. If this is not fixed, it could increase the risk of accident, NHTSA said.

Toyota says this issue has also not been associated with any incidents or injuries. Notices for both recalls will be mailed out starting next month. To find out if your vehicle is affected, enter your car’s VIN on the NHTSA recall website.
