2013 Toyota Highlander RecallsSecond Row Left Hand Seat Does Not Always Lock In Place Securely

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.
Vehicles that have had accessories added to the seats such as seat heaters, seat covers or DVD headrests may not have the occupant sensor system of the passenger seat calibrated properly. This can affect passenger air bag operation in a crash. Dealers will test the sensitivity of the occupant detection sensors and recalibrate them as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.
