What Should You Do?
Southeast Toyota will notify owners of affected vehicles during December, 2011. If you find the A-pillar trim in your vehicle is loose, or you don't receive notification and you feel you should have, please contact your dealer. It's helpful to have your vehicle identification number (VIN) when you call.
Southeast Toyota is recalling 518 vehicles equipped with an aftermarket navigation unit or overhead entertainment system, and/or a bluetooth hands-free device. There is a possibility that the front A-pillar trim panel retention clip may have been damaged during the installation of the aftermarket accessory. The trim piece may come loose in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury. Dealers will inspect the A-pillar trim and replace the retaining clip as necessary.
