Recall 14V663000

Load Carrying Capacity Label Incorrect

Recall Details

The vehicle load capacity label may list an erroneous weight rating for the vehicle. Dealers will install an accurate label free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The data that shows the proper load capacity that the vehicle can carry may be incorrect. This could lead to overloading the vehicle, resulting in an accident.

What Should You Do?

Recalls on your Tacoma must be performed by a Toyota dealership. Toyota notified known owners of affected vehicles beginning in December, 2014. If you did not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Toyota dealerships. They will also check for any other uncompleted recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
