Accessory Exhaust Tips Protude Creating Possible Burn Injury

The accessory exhaust tips installed by the Southeast Toyota Distributors may protrude from the rear and allow contact with people, possibly causing burning and injury. Dealers will install a redesigned exhaust tip that is smaller in diameter and more recessed behind the bumper free of charge to resolve the concern.

Southeast Toyota is recalling certain vehicles because the seat heater element may become damaged as a result of compression of the seat cushion.

Dealers will disconnect seat heaters with copper strand elements and refund the purchase price of the seat heater accessory to correct this concern.

Vehicles have a tire size/weight rating label to inform owners of the carrying capacity of their vehicle. These models are being recalled because the incorrect vehicle weight rating is shown on the information label. This could result in vehicle and tire overloading, increasing the risk of tire failure. Owners will be provided an updated vehicle weight label to correct this concern.
