Recall Alert: 22,000 Toyota Vehicles

Toyota Tundra

Toyota is recalling about 22,000 vehicles from the 2008-11 model years because the tire pressure monitoring system in these vehicles was not properly calibrated, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The recall affects the 2008-11 Toyota FJ Cruiser, Land Cruiser, Sequoia, Tacoma and Tundra.

In the affected vehicles, the tire pressure warning light will not illuminate at the required minimum activation pressure. This could lead to tire failure and increase the risk of a crash.

Dealers will re-initialize the system to restore the proper calibration at no charge. Owners can call Toyota at 800-331-4331 or NHTSA’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236.
