Toyota Distributors Recall Nearly 425,000 Vehicles

May 26, 2010

WASHINGTON - Two distributors for Toyota Motor Corp. -- Gulf States Toyota Inc. of Houston and Southeast Toyota Distributors of Deerfield Beach, Fla. -- are recalling a total of 424,835 Toyota vehicles because labels detailing the load-carrying capacity were missing or less accurate than required.

To remedy the problem, dealers will replace the certification label, the tire and loading information label and the load-carrying capacity modification label free of charge. Dealers will also correct the owner's manual, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said.

Gulf States Toyota is recalling 271,417 Toyota vehicles sold between Sept. 1, 2005 and June 2, 2008 without the required load-carrying capacity modification labels.

Southeast Toyota is recalling 153,418 Toyota vehicles sold during the same period for the same reasons.

Gulf States Toyota can be reached at (713) 580-3300. Southeast Toyota can be reached at (954) 420-2000.
