Recall Alert: 2007-11 Toyota Tundra

2010toyotatundra

Toyota is recalling 1,629 Toyota Tundra vehicles from the 2007-11 model years because the tire pressure monitoring system on the pickup trucks may not be properly calibrated, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

In the affected vehicles, which were installed with accessory light-truck tires before arriving at dealerships, the tire pressure warning lamp may not illuminate if the inflation pressure falls below the threshold for when the lamp should light up. Driving with one or more underinflated tires can increase the risk of a tire failure that could lead to a crash.

The recall is expected to begin next month. Dealers will recalibrate the tire pressure monitoring system for free. Owners can call Southeast Toyota at 800-301-6859 or NHTSA’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236.

That's a very nice looking truck.

Better this than a stuck accelerator!
