Toyota Tundra Trucks Recalled for Bumper Steps

Toyota Motor North America is recalling approximately 73,000 2016- and 2017-model year Toyota Tundra pickup trucks in the U.S. so dealers can fix faulty bumper steps, according to the automaker.

The recalled vehicles are equipped with resin rear-step bumpers and resin reinforcement brackets at each corner. But an impact to the corner of the bumper might damage the resin bracket — without the problem being visibly obvious. As a result, if someone steps on the corner of a bumper that’s damaged, a portion of it may break away and pose a safety risk.  

“Toyota dealers will replace the resin reinforcement brackets with new ones that are made of steel at no cost to customers,” Toyota said in a released statement. “In addition, the rear bumper tread covers will be replaced as part of the remedy.”

Toyota will mail out recall notifications starting in mid-February. To check whether any of your fleet vehicles are involved in this recall, you can click here and search by VIN.
