Wrong Weight Limit Label Recall

A minor label issue is about to become a major pain in the butt for 2,500 Toyota and Scion owners. Why do automakers bother with recalls about stickers? Because of federal law. Based on federal regulations, a load carrying modification label must be added to a vehicle if weight exceeding the lesser of 1.5 percent of 100 pounds is added to a vehicle between final vehicle certification and the first retail sale of the vehicle. Any corrected values must be accurate to within 1 percent of the actual added weight.

The goal here is to make sure no-one overloads one of these models:

  • 2016 Toyota Camry
  • 2016 Toyota Highlander
  • 2015-2016 Toyota Tundra
  • 2015-2016 Scion FR-S
  • 2015-2016 Scion tC

The recall began on July 14, 2016.
