Vehicles Affected: Approximately 73,000 model-year 2016-17 Toyota Tundra pickup trucks
The Problem: Pickups equipped with resin rear step bumpers that have resin reinforcement brackets may be damaged during an impact, and the damage may not be noticeable. If a person steps on the corner of a damaged bumper, it may break away, increasing the risk of injury.
The Fix: Dealers will replace the resin reinforcement brackets with steel reinforcement brackets for free.
What Owners Should Do: Toyota will begin notifying owners in mid-February. Owners can call the automaker at 800-331-4331, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit www.safercar.gov to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
