    Toyota recalling 200,000 FJ Cruisers for seatbelt issue
    Story posted 2013.03.15 at 03:34 PM CDT

    Toyota Motor Co. is recalling about 209,000 FJ Cruiser vehicles because mountings for the driver and front passenger seatbelts could become loose.
    In the FJ Cruiser, the front seatbelts are mounted to the back doors. Ordinarily, the front seatbelts would be mounted to a metal pillar between the front and back doors, but the FJ Cruiser has no such pillar. Instead, the retro-styled SUV has rear-hinged "suicide" doors, with the front and back doors opening like a clamshell.
    A metal piece inside the door to which the seatbelt retractor is mounted can become cracked, according to Toyota, especially if the back door is repeatedly slammed.
    FJ Cruiser owners should be notified of the recall by mail soon, Toyota said in a statement. Toyota dealers will perform the necessary repairs on the vehicle free of charge.

    too much to list
    Unlikely. Although we share a similar design in general we do not share the actual doors. The AC Tacoma may have been designed with a much stronger anchor point.

    I just received a recall notice in the mail for my tacoma. If you go to toyota.com/recall and enter your vin # it will let you know what recalls your truck has on it. So, i did and the same recall is for our extended cab trucks. The Campaign # is D1L for the 2005 to 2011 trucks. Not sure if they have a solution yet. Mine is a 2006 US truck i imported, not sure if it applies to Canadian Tacoma's.
