Minor Toyota Tundra Recall Over Sticker
If you own a 2011 Toyota Tundra and you bought it from Gulf States Toyota, then your truck may be under a recall. This news is far less serious than it may sound. There are currently over 500 Toyota Tundra pick up trucks that are being recalled due to a sticker with improper information after certain wheel and tire packages were installed. The stickers that are being recalled provide the wrong load carrying capacity of the 2011 Toyota Tundra.Gulf States is a private distributor of Toyotas in Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas and Oklahoma, and offers options and packages that often differ from features available through Toyota Motor Sales, Inc., USA.
If your Tundra is one of the over 500 trucks that is being recalled, then you can take your vehicle into that distributor who is obligated to replace the sticker. This may seem like a lot of hassle for a sticker, but the proper carrying capacity is necessary to know if you plan on hauling any large loads. If you were to exceed the carrying capacity of the truck, then this can cause wear to the tires and can even potentially cause a crash.
It can be alarming to hear that your vehicle has been recalled, but this is the best possible case. The sticker swap should only take a few minutes.
