RECALL ALERT: Toyota/SUV-Trucks

Toyota Recalls FJ Cruiser, Land Cruiser, Sequoia, Tacoma, Tundra For Failing To Meet Safety Standards



03/07/2011

Toyota is recalling certain FJ Cruiser, Land Cruiser, Sequoia, Tacoma, and Tundra units from the 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011 model years. At issue are the settings on the vehicles' tire pressure monitoring system.

There are federal standards for tire pressure monitoring systems, and unfortunately, many of the systems on these Toyota models were improperly calibrated. As a result, drivers aren't alerted to the fact that the air pressure in their tires is low until the pressure has fallen below acceptable levels. In certain instances, that deflation could could lead to tire failure and possibly a crash.

It's important to note that not all units produced during those model years are affected by the recall. To date, the recall includes roughly 22,000 units. Toyota hasn't notified the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration as to when it plans to launch the official recall, but we would expect owners receive notifications late this month or in early April. Once the recall begins in earnest, owners will be able to take their vehicles to a dealer, who will recalibrate the tire pressure monitoring system free of charge.

In the meantime, if you own one of these vehicles and have questions, you can contact your local dealer, or call Toyota at 800-331-4331. You can also ring the NHTSA at 888-327-4236 and reference campaign number 11V148000.
