Toyota Recall More Than 23,000 Tundra Pickups

July 27, 2020

Toyota has issued a recall affecting over 23,000 vehicles in Canada because of a defect with the front signal lights. 

Date of recall: July 15, 2020

Vehicles affected

The recall is specific to the 2018-20 Toyota Tundra, affecting 23,080 trucks in Canada, plus another 183,397 in the United States.

What’s the problem?

The affected 2018-20 Tundras have a problem with the front signal lights in that they aren’t bright enough to meet regulations. Turn and hazard lights that don’t shine bright enough in all conditions are deemed a potential risk for collision, as oncoming drivers may not realize the truck is making a turn.

Toyota says the issue is in the LED headlight assemblies, where the harness wasn’t installed correctly at the factory because of incorrect instructions that connected the lights to the wrong portion of the harness. 

Toyota hasn’t reported any crashes or injuries related to the defect.

What’s the fix?

Dealers will inspect the wiring harness and fix the faulty connection to ensure the lights are as bright as other Toyota models. The repair will be done free of charge.

What do you do?

Toyota will notify affected owners by mail in mid-September with instructions on when to take their vehicle to a dealer for repair.
