Scion tC Recalls
After installing accessories, the vehicle load carrying capacity may be incorrect on the vehicle certification label. This could result in overloading the vehicle inadvertently, resulting in a crash.
For vehicles modified by the addition of factory available vehicle accessories by Southeast Toyota Distributors, the load carrying capacity label affixed to the vehicle may not show accurate information. This is because the added accessory weight following installation was not accounted for on the existing label. As a result, the vehicle could be accidentally overloaded which could result in a crash.
Certain components of the rear suspension may not be tightened properly. This can cause rear suspension arms to detach, increasing risk of a crash.
Southeast Toyota is recalling certain 2010 - 2013 Toyota & Scion vehicles because the vehicle weight information label is incorrect. This recall applies to Toyotas sold in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, North & South Carolina.
The load carrying capacity modification label may be missing.
All vehicles require certain informational labels. One of these required labels indicates the load carrying capacity of the vehicle, tires, and rims. This information is important to be noted so that the vehicle does not get overloaded with weight and become unsafe to drive.
Under certain conditions, if a door is closed with excessive force, the associated side airbags may deploy. Personal injury could occur to an occupant in the seat where the airbags deploy.
The glass sunroof wind deflector may shatter if impacted by a projectile. Pieces of the deflector may fall on the vehicle occupants, causing driver distraction and/or injury.
On 133 vehicles, certain airbag inflators were not assembled correctly and may not deploy as expected in the event of a crash.
