Additional information:

Among the 67 recalls the NHTSA has announced this February comes news of the following:

Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (“Toyota”) has recalled an estimated 8,769 model year 2017 Toyota Tundra Vehicles. One of the rear split bench seat leg brackets may not have been properly tightened to the vehicle’s floor pan, possibly allowing the seat to move in a crash. A vehicle with an improperly tightened seat leg bracket could fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (“FMVSS”) number 207, “Seating Systems,” 210, “Seat Belt Assembly Anchorages,” and 225, “Child restraint anchorage systems.”

According to the NHTSA, if the rear split bench seat moves in a crash, the seat occupant has an increased risk of injury.

What to do next? Toyota will notify registered owners, and dealers will tighten the five seat leg bracket bolts, as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin March 12, 2018. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-888-270-9371. Toyota’s number for this recall is J0I.
