Southeast Toyota Distributors (SET) is recalling 425 2010-2015 model-year Toyota 4Runner SUVs because their accessory exhaust tips pose an injury risk, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.
These exhaust tips, installed by SET or SET dealers, might cause burns if people stand behind the vehicle, NHTSA said. The recall covers 4Runners manufactured from Sept. 3, 2009, to Dec. 1, 2014.
To resolve the problem, dealers will install a redesigned exhaust tip that’s smaller in diameter and is more recessed behind the bumper. There will be no charge for this service.
SET distributes all Toyota vehicles, parts, and accessories to dealerships in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, and Florida.
The recall is expected to begin Sept. 15. Vehicle owners can reach SET customer service at (866) 405-4226. SET’s number for this recall is SET16D.
