RepairPal Expert Overview on May 1, 2002

The spare tire that the vehicle is equipped with may not be marked as a "temporary use" spare tire. This could mislead a driver using the spare tire in thinking it is not for temporary use. Temporary use spare tires will exhibit different driving characteristics than a full size tire.

Toyota notified owners of affected vehicles starting in July 2002. You can check with your dealer to see if your vehicle is involved in this program. It is helpful to have your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) on hand when you contact them.
