Some Toyota owners with sparkly new models may need to bring their cars back to the dealership.
Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (Toyota) is recalling 2023 Tundra and Tundra Hybrid vehicles equipped with a spray-on bed liner accessory.
According to a recall notice on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) website, the recall applies to only the two above mentioned models and was issued due to incorrect labeling.
Load capacity mislabeled
The load carrying capacity modification label, which tells drivers how much weight can be carried within the car or certain accessories on the car, is printed incorrectly, which can result in an overloaded vehicle.
Because of this, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of NHTSA. An overload increases the possibility of a crash occurring, meaning owners of affected vehicles should refrain from loading their vehicle according to the labels and contact Toyota for a replacement label promptly.
Almost 200,000 cars recalled: Nissan, Kia, Mercedes-Benz, and Ford among 195,000 vehicles recalled: Check car recalls here.
Kia safety hazard recall: Nearly 145,000 Kia vehicles recalled due to potentially fatal safety hazard. See the list:
