The 2022 Toyota Tundra has its first recall

Share

A recall on a new truck? Yup, the first 2022 Toyota Tundra recall has been issued, and it looks like a quick fix for the rearview camera.

Toyota issued the recall on April 28, 2022, and it involves 18,101 trucks. The issue is the rearview camera image may not display for 2022 Tundra trucks with a Panoramic View Monitor.

The official recall:

  • NHTSA Campaign Number: 22V285000
  • Manufacturer Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing
  • Components ELECTRICAL SYSTEM, BACK OVER PREVENTION
  • Potential Number of Units Affected 18,101

Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (Toyota) is recalling certain 2022 Tundra vehicles equipped with a Panoramic View Monitor (PVM) system. The parking assist electronic control unit (ECU) software may prevent transmission of the rearview camera signal during cold weather, preventing the rearview image from displaying. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 111, “Rear Visibility.”

Dealers will reprogram the parking assist ECU software, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed May 30, 2022. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-800-331-4331. Toyota’s number for this recall is 22TA04.

If you have questions you can contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.nhtsa.gov.
