Toyota Recalls Five 2008-'11 Vehicles for Tire Failure Risk


Published Mar 8, 2011

Just the Facts:

  • Toyota is recalling 22,000 2008-'11 FJ Cruiser, Land Cruiser, Sequoia, Tacoma and Tundra vehicles in the U.S. for a problem with the tire-pressure monitoring system that could lead to tire failure, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
  • The defective system could fail to warn of tire deflations, said NHTSA.
  • Toyota did not provide the federal government with a recall notification schedule at this point.

WASHINGTON — Toyota is recalling 22,000 2008-'11 FJ Cruiser, Land Cruiser, Sequoia, Tacoma and Tundra vehicles in the U.S. for a problem with the tire-pressure monitoring system that could lead to tire failure, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
 

"The tire-pressure monitoring systems were not recalibrated correctly and therefore do not start illuminating the low-tire-pressure warning telltale at the required minimum activation pressures," said NHTSA in its recalls summary of the problem. "Failure to warn of tire deflations is a non-compliance (with a federal motor vehicle safety standard) and could lead to tire failure, increasing the risk of a crash."
 

Toyota dealers will re-initialize the tire-pressure monitoring system. In other documentation filed with the federal government, Toyota said the tire-pressure monitoring system on the affected FJ Cruiser vehicles will be changed because it cannot be reset.
 

Toyota did not provide the federal government with a recall notification schedule at this point.

Inside Line says: If you own one of the aforementioned Toyota vehicles, be aware that a recall is in the works. — Anita Lienert, Correspondent
