Recall number: 13V163000
Recall date: 04/25/2013

Problem Summary:

TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION (TOYOTA) IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2007-2013 FJ CRUISER VEHICLES MANUFACTURED JANUARY 25, 2006 THROUGH FEBRUARY 23, 2013 AND EQUIPPED WITH A TOYOTA AUXILIARY DRIVING LAMP KITS MOUNTED TO THE FRONT BUMPER. THESE LAMP ASSEMBLIES INCLUDE 55 WATT BULBS AND DUE TO THIS WATTAGE AND MOUNTING ANGLE, THE COMBINATION OF THE UPPER BEAM HEADLAMPS PLUS THE AUXILIARY LAMPS ARE TOO BRIGHT AND EXCEED THE MAXIMUM LIGHT OUTPUT ALLOWED FOR AN UPPER BEAM HEADLAMP. THEREFORE, THESE VEHICLES FAIL TO CONFORM TO FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD NO. 108, "LAMPS, REFLECTIVE DEVICES, AND ASSOCIATED EQUIPMENT.

Consequence:

LIGHT INTENSITIES ABOVE THE MAXIMUM ALLOWABLE LIMIT COULD CAUSE INCREASED GLARE FOR ONCOMING TRAFFIC AND INCREASE THE RISK OF A CRASH.

Recall date: 03/15/2013

Problem Summary:

TOYOTA IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2007 THROUGH 2013 FJ CRUISER PASSENGER VEHICLES. THE RETRACTORS FOR THE FRONT DRIVER AND PASSENGER SEAT BELTS ARE MOUNTED IN THE ACCESS DOOR (REAR DOOR) PANELS OF THE VEHICLE. DUE TO INSUFFICIENT STRENGTH OF THE ACCESS DOOR PANEL, CRACKS MAY DEVELOP IN THE PANEL IF THE ACCESS DOOR IS REPEATEDLY AND FORCEFULLY CLOSED OVER AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF TIME.

Consequence:

IF CRACKS OCCUR IN THE PANEL AROUND THE LOWER RETRACTOR ANCHOR, THE SEAT BELT RETRACTOR COULD BECOME DETACHED, WHICH COULD INCREASE THE RISK OF INJURY TO AN OCCUPANT IN THE EVENT OF A CRASH.

EQUIPMENT

Recall number: 12E046000
Recall date: 10/17/2012

Problem Summary:

TOYOTA IS RECALLING CERTAIN TOYOTA RACING DEVELOPMENT (TRD) BRAKE KITS, P/N PTR09-35070, AND TRD HIGH-PERFORMANCE BRAKE KITS, P/N PTR09-35100, INSTALLED BY TOYOTA VEHICLE PROCESSING CENTERS AND SOLD BY TOYOTA DEALERS AS AN OPTIONAL ACCESSORY FOR MODEL YEAR 2007 THROUGH 2012 TOYOTA FJ CRUISER VEHICLES. THE SUBJECT TRD BRAKE KIT IS SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED FOR THE FRONT WHEELS OF 2007-2012 MODEL YEAR FJ CRUISER VEHICLES. DUE TO THE SHAPE OF THE OUTER BRAKE TUBE OF THE BRAKE KIT, THE CLEARANCE BETWEEN THE OUTER BRAKE TUBE AND A TRD 16 INCH 6-SPOKE ALLOY WHEEL IS MINIMAL.

THIS REMEDY WILL BE PERFORMED EVEN IF THE VEHICLE HAS ORIGINAL EQUIPMENT 16 INCH OR 17 INCH WHEELS OR TRD 16 INCH BEADLOCK RING TYPE WHEELS, WHICH ARE NOT AFFECTED BY THE CONDITION, TO ASSURE SUFFICIENT CLEARANCE IN THE EVENT WHEELS ARE CHANGED AT A LATER TIME.
