Southeast Toyota recalls several vehicles for incorrect labels

2012 Toyota Highlander

The latest Toyota recall comes not from the manufacturer, but one of their distributors, in particular, Southeast Toyota (also know as SET). These vehicles were equipped with labels that were outside of the allowable percentage of actual weight added…one percent to be exact. Although the percentage may seem minute, it does disqualify their compliance in accordance of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) Number 110, “Tire Selection and Rims.”

The vehicles affected by the recall were sold to regional Toyota dealerships that purchased them from Southeast Toyota. They are:

  • 2008, 2010-2013 Toyota Tundra
  • 2010-2012 Toyota RAV4
  • 2012 Toyota Sequoia
  • 2010-2011 Toyota Corolla
  • 2010-2011 Toyota Camry and Camry Hybrid
  • 2010-2013 Toyota Highlander and Highlander Hybrid
  • 2010-2013 Toyota FJ Cruiser
  • 2011 Toyota Land Cruiser
  • 2010-2013 Toyota Venza
  • 2010-2011 Toyota 4Runner
  • 2010-2013 Toyota Tacoma
  • 2011-2012 Toyota Sienna
  • 2012 Toyota Prius
  • 2013 Scion FR-S
  • 2011 Scion XD
  • 2011 Scion XB
  • 2012 Scion TC

Southeast Toyota will begin shipping out correct labels, along with the recall campaign notice, as well as instructions on how to apply them. Some of the affected vehicles will need additional remedies, which once the solutions are finalized, will be sent out in an additional letter. For this latest Toyota recall, if you feel that your vehicle is involved, or are unable to properly apply the label, you can contact your local Toyota dealership. The recall is set to begin around May 7, 2013.
