Recall Alert: 2011 Toyota FJ Cruiser, 2009-11 Tundra

2011fjcruiser
Toyota is recalling 1,489 FJ Cruiser and Tundra vehicles because the tire pressure monitoring system may not be properly calibrated, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

In certain 2011 FJ Cruisers and 2009-11 Tundras sold with accessory light-truck tires, the tire pressure warning lamp may not illuminate if the pressure in any of the tires falls below the threshold for when the lamp should light up. Driving with underinflated tires increases the risk of tire failure and could lead to a crash.

The recall is expected to begin next month. Dealers will properly calibrate the tire pressure monitoring system at no charge. For more info, owners can call Gulf States Toyota at 800-444-1074 or NHTSA’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236.

This is a known malady for many TPM systems, not only with my 2009 Tundra but also with our 2009 LS460. Since these are the first vehicles we've ever owned with a TPM system on them I have not yet learned to rely on their accuracy and still check my TP each month. I did notice that when I put Michelin tires on my Tundra I was getting a consistent 'low' reading until I disconnected the battery. When I reconnected the battery after inflating all four tires to 32psi everything was fine. D
