The automaker found that the problem can be caused by the vehicle’s shift lever assembly.

“Because of the potential for damage to the shift lock solenoid installed in involved vehicles, there is a possibility that the shift lever could be moved out of the "P" position without the driver depressing the brake pedal. This could result in a vehicle roll-away.” said Toyota in an official statement.

Vehicles affected by the problem are those produced in 2004, 2005, 2007, 2008 and 2009. All owners will be notified by first class mail and advised to bring their vehicle to a Toyota dealer for replacement of the shift lock solenoid.
