Toyota FJ Cruiser Recalls
Certain FJ models were equipped with auxiliary driving lights mounted to the front bumper. If these lights are used in conjunction with the high beam headlights, the total illumination exceeds federal safety standards. The resulting glare to oncoming traffic could reduce visibility, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the original 55 watt auxiliary driving light bulbs with 35 watt bulbs 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.
The driver and passenger front seat belt retractors are located in the rear doors. If the rear doors are repeatedly closed with excessive force the door panel may crack. If cracks occur around to lower seat belt retractor anchor the retractor could come loose, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash. Toyota is currently developing a remedy for this problem.
