Toyota Recall of Certain Model Year 2007 -2011 Tundra Vehicles

Washington, D.C.—(ENEWSPF)—May 17, 2011.

Summary: Southeast Toyota is recalling certain model year 2007 – 2011 Tundra vehicles for failing to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 138, “Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMs).” The TPMs on some vehicles may not have been properly calibrated and as a result the low tire pressure warning lamp may not illuminate should the inflation pressure in one or more of the vehicle’s tires fall below the threshold for when the low tire pressure warning lamp should illuminate.

Consequence: Drivers will not receive a warning from the tire pressure monitor that one or more tires are underinflated, increasing the risk that the vehicle will be driven with one or more underinflated tires, increasing the risk of a tire failure that may lead to a crash.

Remedy: Dealers will recalibrate the tire pressure monitoring system in accordance with the regulation free of charge. The Safety Recall is expected to begin during May 2011. Owners may contact Southeast Toyota Customer Assistance Center toll free at 800-301-6859, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. eastern standard time.

Notes: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
