4Runner Shipped with Wrong Load Labels

When you hear your vehicle has been recalled, a little bit of panic is expected — is it one of those Takata airbags? A defective transmission? Does it have something to do with that strange smell I can’t get rid of?

Well, luckily for you this time it’s all about some stickers (so you’re still going to have to figure out the smell on your own):

Gulf States Toyota says the “load carrying capacity modification” label may be incorrect concerning the “correct added weight of the installed accessories.” That little issue is a violation of federal vehicle safety standards.

Gulf States Toyota is the 2nd largest distributor of Toyota vehicles in the world. To find out if your vehicle came from Gulf States, give ‘em a ring at 800-444-1074 (use recall number 16R2).
