Recall 16V420000

Load Rating Label Inaccurate After Accessory Installation

Recall Details

The vehicle certification label may have the incorrect load carrying capacity listed on it. Toyota will provide owners with a corrected label, and dealers will aid in installation if necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

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.

What Should You Do?

Recall repairs on your Toyota must be performed by a Toyota dealership. Toyota will notify known owners of affected vehicles beginning in July, 2016. If you do 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.
