February 8, 2017

Toyota is recalling approximately 72,847 model year 2016-2017 Tundra vehicles equipped with a resin rear step bumper and resin reinforcement brackets (vehicles with chrome step bumpers are not affected).

In the event of an impact to the corner of the bumper, the resin bracket could be damaged, but that damage may not be noticed.

If a person steps on the corner of the bumper that is damaged, a portion of the bumper may break away, increasing the risk of injury.

Toyota will notify owners of the recalled vehicles, and dealers will replace the resin rear bumper reinforcement brackets with steel ones, and replace the rear bumper tread, free of charge.

Remedy parts for this recall are not currently available. Toyota will begin notifying owners of the recall on February 15, 2017. A second notice will be mailed when parts are available.

Owners with additional questions about this recall can contact Toyota customer service at (800) 331-4331.

Toyota's reference number for this recall is H0C.
