Toyota Recalls Pickups, Other Models for Overloading Risk

Toyota is recalling 649 vehicles because they may have labels that inaccurately specify load-carrying capacity, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The recall covers certain 2017 and 2018 Toyota 4Runner and Tundra vehicles; 2018 Toyota Highlander, RAV4 and Lexus GX460 vehicles; and 2017 Toyota Sienna and Tacoma vehicles, NHTSA said.

“An incorrect load information label can result in the operator overloading the vehicle and increasing the risk of a crash,” NHTSA warned on its website.

Toyota will notify owners and provide them with corrected labels, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin Jan. 15.

Vehicle owners can reach Toyota customer service at (800) 331-4331. Toyota's numbers for this recall are H0Z for Toyota vehicles, and HLF for Lexus vehicles.
