In the past month, Toyota has recalled cars that leak gas and catch on fire, faced growing criticism about unintended acceleration at low speeds and been named in a lawsuit complaining about rusted frames in older trucks. So, finding out your Toyota has been recalled for an incorrect tire pressure label isn’t that big of a deal. It’s really more along the lines of a pain in the you-know-what that needs attention to pass federal safety standards. Here’s what you need to know:
The problem: The wrong tire pressure placard was put on the driver-side B-pillar and that violates federal safety standards.
The recalled models: The 2008-2014 FJ Cruiser and Tacoma. About 20,000 vehicles in total.
The fix: Toyota has already started mailing out new overlay labels to owners. You simply place the new sticker over the old one. Technically, you can bring your vehicle to a dealership to have them affix the new label for you if you are a big fan of wasting your time.
If you haven’t received your new label, or have any questions, you can call Toyota customer service at 800-331-4331.
