Vehicles Affected: Approximately 400 model-year 2010-15 Toyota 4Runner SUVs manufactured between Sept. 3, 2009, and Dec. 1, 2014
The Problem: Affected vehicles may be equipped with accessory exhaust tips installed by Southeast Toyota Distributors that may contact people and possibly burn them while they are standing behind the vehicle, resulting in personal injury.
The Fix: Dealers will install a redesigned exhaust tip that is smaller in diameter and more recessed behind the bumper, for free.
What Owners Should Do: Southeast Toyota Distributors will begin notifying owners on Sept. 15. Owners can call Southeast Toyota Distributors at 866-405-4226 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or go to www.safercar.gov for more info.
