Tire Pressure Placard Recall

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.
