Load Carrying Capacity Modification Label – Non-Moisture Resistant Labels

 

On March 27, 2019, Gulf States Toyota filed a Noncompliance Information Report (NCIR) with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) informing the agency of our intent to conduct a voluntary Noncompliance Recall on certain 2019 Model Year Camry and Camry Hybrid, RAV4, Corolla, Corolla Hatchback, Highlander, Tacoma, Avalon and Avalon Hybrid, CH-R, Yaris, Sienna, Prius, Prius Prime, Sequoia, Land Cruiser, 4Runner, Tundra and 2020 Model Year Corolla vehicles.

 

Condition

The affected vehicles contain a load carrying capacity modification label that was from a defective batch, not moisture resistant and may become illegible as the yellow ink has the potential to transfer off the label causing the label to lose color and text.  As a result, the vehicles do not meet a requirement of FMVSS No. 110. A vehicle which is loaded beyond its load carrying capacity may have an increased risk of a crash.

 

Remedy

For all retailed vehicles, a new label will be provided at no cost to customers.  Customers may also visit an authorized Toyota dealer for assistance in replacing the label.  For vehicles in new dealership stock, a new blank label will be provided to the dealership immediately after campaign launch.

 

Covered Vehicles

There are approximately 3,634 vehicles covered by this Noncompliance Recall.

 

Owner Letter Mailing Date

Gulf States Toyota will begin to notify owners in mid-May 2019.

GST makes significant effort to obtain current customer name and address information when mailing owner letters.  In the event your dealership receives a notice for a vehicle that was sold prior to the Noncompliance Recall announcement, it is the dealerships responsibility to forward the owner letter to the customer who purchased the vehicle. 

Please note that only owners of the covered vehicles will be notified. If you are contacted by an owner who has not yet received a notification, please verify eligibility by confirming through TIS prior to applying any new labels.  Dealers should apply any new labels for this recall as outlined in the Technical Instructions found in TIS.

 

Dealer Inventory Procedures 

New Vehicles in Dealership Inventory

There are approximately 1,558 vehicles in new dealer inventory.

Red Stop Under Title 49, Section 30112 of the United States Code, a dealer cannot sell, offer for sale, or introduce or deliver for introduction in interstate commerce a new motor vehicle when it is aware that the vehicle does not comply with an applicable Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard or contains a defect related to motor vehicle safety. In addition, 49 Code of Federal Regulations §577.13 requires us to provide the following advisory: It is a violation of Federal law for a dealer to deliver a new motor vehicle or any new or used item of motor vehicle equipment (including a tire) covered by this notification under a sale or lease until the defect or noncompliance is remedied.
Vehicle Safety Recall completion should always be verified through TIS. We request your assistance to ensure involved vehicles are identified and not delivered prior to performing the remedy.

 

Inspection Reminder Mirror Hang Tags for Covered Vehicles in New Dealer Stock

To easily recognize vehicles involved in this Safety Recall, each dealership should utilize Inspection Reminder Hang Tags. Inside the vehicle’s glove box are stickers containing the VIN. Apply one of these stickers to the hang tag and install the hang tag in the vehicle. A sample copy of the Inspection Reminder Hang Tag has been included for your reference.

Hold For Inspection

NOTE: Dealerships can order hang tags from the Material Distribution Center (MDC).

Pre-Owned Vehicles in Dealer Inventory

To ensure customer satisfaction, Toyota requests that dealers complete this Noncompliance Recall on any used vehicles currently in dealer inventory that are covered by this Noncompliance Recall prior to customer delivery.  GST requests that dealers do not deliver any pre-owned vehicles in dealer inventory that are covered by a Safety Recall unless the vehicle has been remedied.

 

Toyota Certified Used Vehicle (TCUV)

Toyota Certified Used Vehicle (TCUV) policy prohibits the certification of any vehicle with an outstanding Special Service Campaign or Safety Recall. Thus, no affected units should be designated, sold, or delivered as a TCUV until the Safety Recall has been completed on that vehicle.

 

Toyota Rent-A-Car (TRAC) & Service Loaners

GST requests that dealers remove all TRAC and Service Loaner vehicles from service that are covered by a Safety Recall unless the defect has been remedied.

 

Customer Handling, Parts Ordering, and Remedy Procedures

Customer Contacts

Customers who receive the owner letter may contact your dealership with questions regarding the letter and/or the Customer Support Program.  Please welcome them to your dealership and answer any questions that they may have.  A Q&A is provided to assure a consistent message is communicated.
