Toyota is recalling 1,489 FJ Cruiser and Tundra vehicles because the tire pressure monitoring system may not be properly calibrated, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
In certain 2011 FJ Cruisers and 2009-11 Tundras sold with accessory light-truck tires, the tire pressure warning lamp may not illuminate if the pressure in any of the tires falls below the threshold for when the lamp should light up. Driving with underinflated tires increases the risk of tire failure and could lead to a crash.
The recall is expected to begin next month. Dealers will properly calibrate the tire pressure monitoring system at no charge. For more info, owners can call Gulf States Toyota at 800-444-1074 or NHTSA’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236.
