Toyota is recalling approximately 75,316 model-year 2022-2023 Tacoma vehicles. One or more of the individual welds in the upper child seat anchors may be insufficient. An insufficient weld may prevent the child seat from being anchored properly, allowing it to move during a sudden stop or crash, increasing the risk of injury.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on September 2, 2022. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 800-331-4331 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
The remedy is currently under development.
