2018-2019 Toyota Tundra: Recall Alert

2018 Toyota Tundra

By Patrick Masterson

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 500 model-year 2018-19 Toyota Tundra pickup trucks

The Problem: The accessory all-weather floormats may have been counted twice when creating the load-carrying capacity modification label, resulting in the capacity modification label incorrectly overstating the additional weight by 10 pounds. Since the incorrect label is not within 1 percent of the additional weight, the vehicles are not compliant with federal safety standards.

The Fix: Owners will be sent a corrected label.

What Owners Should Do: Toyota will begin notifying owners Nov. 9. Owners can call the automaker at 888-270-9371, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.

LOL. Talk about a minor one and only on 500 trucks. Everyone else should take notes.

Oh no, 10lbs. What do we do? lol

I thought the recall pertained to antique and classic insurance eligibility.

Counted twice,
tell the guy counting to switch to coffee, or tell Toyota to forget about the truck market and focus on floor mats

may have counted sales twice too

Toyota builds a great product. Very respectable manufacturer. Ford should take notes on how to react responsibly and not over rate their trucks capability.

The retards are out, gms is a perfect example

Toyota builds a great product. Very respectable manufacturer. GM should take notes on how to react responsibly and at least rate their trucks capability

I don't think people care about news like this. I think people want to know what's toyota has planned for the next tundra redesign.

Agreed, I think Toyota is fine. You however you are such a hypocrite. You call others losers, yet you use their commenting names. Stop being such a hypocrite and grow up.

4 out of 10 are GM products

Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD, Chevrolet Traverse, Cadillac ATS.

@TNTGMC

Back to reality for a moment.

Ask yourself (this is something called personal reflection--you should try it now and then) ahem, ask yourself if CR readers who actually participate in their vehicle surveys (???) ever buy anything except Honda Elements and older Volvo's. And they live in Vermont.

They would probably lose their faculty-lounge privileges if they ever showed up for school in their GMC or Chevy or Buick. Bernie for President in 2020, right?

@papajim--If I had the money I would get a Honda or a Yugo and I'd drive it with pride. You wouldn't. But not everyone has to drive a Buick or Chevy Suburban. My granddad had a Buick and he worshipped it like you worship GMC. But the new Honda Element is a showstopper. Consumer Reports is my go to and they are not biased by advertising. That's why I will never buy a Chevy or GMC Motor Trend ad of the year. Strictly imports for me and my fellow Bernie supporters. There is nothing wrong with that. From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs" is a saying my granddad a used to say and itviscwirds to live by.

FAKE Jeff

@papajim--You would not know the real Jeff if he popped you in the nose. A political analyst updated his outlook for the House just days before midterm elections, giving the Democrats an even greater edge over Republicans hoping to maintain power. Dave Wasserman, who is House editor of the nonpartisan Cook Political Report, tweeted Wednesday that their forecast was being updated, predicting that Democrats gain 30-40 seats, up from 25-35 seats.

@Fake Jeff

Why not take EVERY dollar you own and bet it on Charlie Cook's lame polling.

See if you can borrow a few bucks from your mom too. Go back and look at Cook's predictions for the 2016 election. On second thought, just roll the dice on the 2018 Cook results. See if your bank will loan you a few bucks on the old house too while you're at it.

Rasmussen nailed the results of the election in 2016. FYI, the Cook people are all old time Democrat pollsters. Their figures always oversample the Dems.

Watch what they're saying, unless you want to really hit a home run and win big on Charlie Cook's figures. You're man enough, right? You're not afraid to bet big, right?

@FAKE Jeff

One more thing.

A poll just out this week says that sentiment among Americans (is the country on the right track or not...) has doubled (to the Good) in the two years since the last president checked out. Remember that guy?

Doubled. Despite all the negative reporting in the media against the new president. Up 100 percent.

Really, bet the farm on Charlie Cook's numbers. Don't be a wuss. You can do it. Hit a big homer. You're not afraid are you?

@ madmax

JD Initial quality = first 90 days of ownership

The CR report is over 365 days.

Big difference moron

Exactly. Their reliability survey has really been much ado about nothing. The data they base it on is skewed from the beginning and they don't share much in terms details about their methodology. Their results simply come out of a black box and we are not allowed to see how they came to their conclusions.

@rammins

CR surveys are fine for people who might be shopping for a small car like a Honda, Nissan, Toyota, Kia coupe or compact sedan. That and Volvos.

That's who their readers are. Buying a big Ford RAM or GMC? I'd put a lot more faith in Pickups.com and their discussions.

I will second that opinion.

Sorry, I meant to write pickuptrucks.com not pickups.com
