2011 Toyota 4Runner Recalls
The accessory add on exhaust tips added prior to vehicle sale may protrude from the bumper area, burning someone walking by or standing behind the vehicle.
For vehicles equipped with aftermarket accessory seat heaters, the seat heater elements in the front seats may short circuit if they are damaged by the seat cushion being compressed over time. This could result in a fire hazard.
The passenger frontal air bag assembly is deployed by an inflator which contains propellant that makes the air bag deploy. This propellant may degrade over time, especially when exposed to humidity and temperature cycling. As a result, the inflator may rupture on deployment, which can send metal shrapnel through the air bag, striking vehicle occupants. This could result in serious injury or death.
Accessory exhaust tips installed by Southeast Toyota Distributors may be positioned so that people can contact them when positioned behind the vehicle. This can result in burning and injuring someone.
The seat heater may not work because of a damaged heating element.
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.
Vehicles that had added on seat accessories such as seat cover installation, seat heaters or headrest DVD systems may not have had proper calibration procedures performed to properly operate the occupant sensing system of the passenger seat. This may result in the passenger front air bag being inadvertently deactivated, increasing risk of injury in an accident.
