2009 Toyota Pts18-48081 Equipment Recall | Apr 27, 2009

Toyota Is Recalling 39,100 Stainless Steel Exhaust Tips Sold By Toyota As An Optional Accessory For Use On My 2008 Highlander And Highlander Hybrid Vehicles. Due To Improper Heat Treatment During The Manufacturing Process, The Original Clamp Used To Secure The Toyota Stainless Steel Exhaust Tip To The Exhaust Pipe May Develop Microscopic Cracks. Eventually The Crack May Expand Causing The Clamp To Break.

The Original Clamp And The Toyota Stainless Steel Exhaust Tip May Fall Off The Vehicle’s Exhaust Pipe And Become A Road Hazard Which Would Increase The Risk Of A Vehicle Crash.

Summary Of Corrective Actions Taken: Toyota Will Notify Owners And Replace The Clamp Free Of Charge. The Safety Recall Began On May 4, 2009.
