April Toyota Recall due to Faulty Tire Pressure Monitoring System

By Car Accident Help on April 4, 2011

Gulf States Toyota is recalling approximately 1,500 cars beginning in April, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) website SafeCar.gov. This recall is due to defective tires; specifically, faulty tire pressure monitoring and regulating systems in the 2011 Toyota FJ Cruiser and 2009-2011 Toyota Tundra.

The affected Toyota models fail to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 138, which refers to “Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems” (TPMS). The TPMS of the aforementioned models may not have been properly calibrated, resulting in the malfunction or altogether absent function of the low tire pressure warning light when the pressure of one or more tires has gone lower than the required limit. This increases the risk of driving with low pressure tires, which can subsequently result in tire failure, increasing the risk of an Oklahoma car accident.

Any Oklahoma resident that drives a Toyota FJ Cruiser or Tundra of the previously mentioned years should take their car to the nearest Toyota dealer, who will recalibrate the tire pressure monitoring system as per the terms of the federal safety standard, free of charge. Owners can contact the Gulf State Toyota Customer Assistance Center toll free at 1-800-444-1074.; the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s safety hotline is also available at 1-888-327-4236. It is important that all Oklahoma drivers get their Toyota FJ Cruiser or Tundra repaired as soon as possible in order to prevent potential car crashes due to the faulty tire system.

If you or a loved one has been injured in an Oklahoma traffic accident due to a faulty auto product, you may be entitled to legal action against the product manufacturer. The experienced Oklahoma City defective auto product lawyers of Maples Law Firm, LLP, work with faulty product accident victims so that they may receive maximum compensation for the financial and emotional losses and damages they have suffered.
