    ...too much shit to list.
    Has nothing to do with aftermarket accessories. Toyota is required to add that sticker for any item(s) added after it left the factory even if the weight is negligible. It could be as simple as floor mats. Some of the factory GVWR ratings on the factory sticker are wrong and they will add that yellow sticker during services. They are supposed to put it on the driver front door jam though.

    It's not dramatic. It's covering their asses because of the litigious nation we live in.

    in reply... Toyota is responding to this.

    https://www.sandiegouniontribune.co...tles-lawsuit-with-toyota-2010sep17-story.html

    The throttle stuck wide open and 4 people died. The issue was that additional thicker floor mats were dealer installed on this service dept rental vehicle. The Rental department was told the day before that there was an issue with the throttle sticking and did nothing. It is estimated that the settlement was in excess of $10m. Just before the Lexus crossed the intersection the driver tried to scrub off speed by side-swiping a vehicle stopped at the bottom of the hill. They hit an embankment straight on at over 100 mph, car burst into flames and flipped end over end, over the embankment.

    As a result of this, dealerships no longer have "loaner" vehicles... they rent a car for you from a seperate businees that is on site.
