Toyota Tacoma and 4Runner Vehicles Equipped with Accessory Hood Scoops Recalled

The adhesive attaching the hood scoop may weaken, allowing the scoop to detach from the vehicle

July 24, 2017

Southeast Toyota Distributors is recalling certain model year 2011-2016 Toyota Tacoma and 4Runner vehicles equipped with accessory hood scoops installed by SET or SET dealers.

Approximately 3,550 Tacoma and 4Runner vehicles are affected by this recall.

What's the problem?

On the impacted vehicles, the adhesive attaching the hood scoop may weaken, allowing the hood scoop to detach from the vehicle while it is in motion.

If the hood scoop detaches, it may become a road hazard, increasing the risk of a crash.

What happens next?

Southeast Toyota Distributors will notify owners of the recalled Tacoma and 4Runner vehicles beginning in late August 2017. Dealers will then mechanically fasten the scoop to the hood. This repair will be completed free of charge to vehicle owners.

For more information on this recall, contact Southeast Toyota Distributors customer service at (954) 429-2000. Reference recall number SET17B.
