Vehicles Affected: About 20,000 model-year 2008-14 Toyota FJ Cruiser SUVs and Tacoma pickup trucks equipped with accessory wheels and tires installed by Toyota or dealers before the vehicles’ first sale.
The Problem: The vehicles may incorrectly list the spare tire size or inflation info on the tire placard. If the incorrect pressure is provided, tire failure may occur while it’s being driven on, increasing the risk of a crash.
The Fix: Toyota will begin notifying owners this month, and the automaker will provide, either by mail to owners or to dealers, overlay stickers for placement over the incorrect info on the placard.
What Owners Should Do: Owners can call Toyota at 800-331-4331, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov for more info.
