FJ Recall
Has any FJ Cruiser owner of a complete this recall below? If yes, are you getting the run around from Toyota and the dealership? Toyota is claiming by Federal Law my tires psi needs to be set at 46. This seems to be unsatisfactory to the life of the tire and a comfortable ride. Let me know if you had the same run around.

March 5, 2011 – Toyota Motor Corp. said Saturday is recalling 22,000 SUVs and pickups that have faulty tire pressure monitoring systems — the latest safety campaign issued by the Japanese automaker.

The recall covers some versions of 2008-2011 Toyota FJ Cruiser, Land Cruiser, Sequoia, Tacoma and Tundra vehicles.

Under federal regulations, the vehicle's tire pressure monitoring systems must warn the driver not more than 20 minutes after the inflation pressure in a tire is equal to or less than either the pressure 25 percent below the recommended pressure.

Toyota said the recall covers accessory wheels approved by Toyota that were installed at vehicle processing centers prior to distribution to dealers or by dealers prior to first sale.

When the tires were changed, the tire pressure monitoring systems were not recalibrated correctly and do not start illuminating the low tire pressure warning sign at the required minimum activation pressure, Toyota said.

Toyota will reset the system in most of the vehicles so they alert drivers as required.

For the FJ Cruiser, the tire pressure monitoring system computer module will be changed because it cannot be reset.

Toyota spokesman .. said Saturday that the company is unaware of any crashes or injuries related to the tire pressure system recall.
