Toyota is currently conducting a recall for its Tacoma pickup truck over a component that will be of particular concern for caregivers: faulty car seat anchors.

More than 75,000 model-year 2022-23 Tacoma pickups are currently under recall for upper car seat anchors that may not have been installed sufficiently. As a result, the anchors may not meet the minimum strength required to keep the car seat in place in the event of a sudden stop or crash, increasing the risk of injury.

Currently, there’s no remedy for the issue, but owners can expect to be notified by mid-September. Those with further questions in the meantime can call the automaker at 800-331-4331, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or visit its website to check your vehicle identification number and learn more.
