Toyota is conducting a noncompliance safety recall involving certain Tacoma vehicles
PLANO, Texas (July 21, 2022) – Toyota is conducting a noncompliance safety recall involving certain 2022-2023 model year Tacoma vehicles in the U.S. Approximately 75,400 vehicles are involved in this recall.
The upper child seat anchors of the involved vehicles may not have been welded sufficiently and may not meet minimum strength requirements. Vehicles with upper child seat anchor welds that do not meet strength requirements do not comply with applicable regulations in the U.S. An insufficient weld may allow the child seat to move during a sudden stop or crash, increasing the risk of injury.
Toyota is currently developing the remedy for this issue. Once the remedy has been finalized, affected owners will be advised to take their vehicles to a Toyota dealer to have the repair performed.
Owners will be notified by mid-September 2022.
