Toyota Recalls 75,000 Sequoia and Tundra Vehicles

PLANO, Texas  – Toyota Motor North America, Inc. today announced that it is conducting separate safety recalls in the U.S. of approximately 8,800 Model Year 2017 Tundra and approximately 65,000 Model Year 2018 Sequoia and Tundra vehicles.

Model Year 2017 Tundra
In the involved vehicles with second row seats, there is a possibility that one or more of the bolts attaching the left rear seat to the floor may not have been properly fastened.  A seat with improperly fastened bolts may lead to an increased risk of injury in the event of a crash.

For all involved vehicles, Toyota dealers will properly tighten the bolts at no cost to customers.  All known owners will receive a notification by first-class mail starting in the middle of March.

Model Year 2018 Sequoia and Tundra
In the involved vehicles, there is a possibility that a vehicle diagnostic function may unnecessarily turn off the Vehicle Stability Control System and affect other systems. If this occurs, warning lights and messages will be displayed, and a warning chime will sound. Turning off Vehicle Stability Control could increase the risk of a crash.

For all involved vehicles, Toyota dealers will update the software in an electronic control unit at no cost to customers.  All known owners will receive a notification by first-class mail starting in the middle of March.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at davidhiggins@southernmarylandchronicle.com

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
