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.
