Toyota Motor North America is recalling approximately 73,000 model year 2016 and 2017 Toyota Tundras.
The vehicles are equipped with resin rear step bumpers and resin reinforcement brackets at each corner. In the event of an impact to the corner of the bumper, the resin bracket may become damaged but not be noticed.
If a person steps on the corner of the bumper that is damaged, a portion of it may break away, increasing the risk of injury.
What to do
Toyota dealers will replace the resin reinforcement brackets with new ones made of steel at no cost to customers. In addition, the rear bumper tread covers will be replaced as part of the remedy. Owners of the recalled vehicles will receive a notification by first class mail starting in the middle of February.
Owners may call Toyota customer service at 1-800-331-4331 or Lexus customer service at 1-800-255-3987.
