    this is how toyota qouted this...

    "Update to Load carrying capacity modification(addendum)label)

    they send me this yellow label so i can stick it on the side of the door saying...
    what we told consumers is a lie... so here we sent this bring yellow sticker saying... we have reduced the load capacity by 5lbs so you will not sue us!

    thank you come again!

    It's related to a Federal Recall. I don't know if the Feds are just cracking down on Toyota in particular or what the deal is. Do a search for the recall and you can read who is affected. The recall is vague on the issue though, as it says it is related to "rims and tires."

    What a fuckin joke, they send out a sticker with a few pounds reduction to meet the safety requirements of the statement "INCORRECT LOAD CARRYING CAPACITY MODIFICATION LABELS COULD RESULT IN THE VEHICLE BEING OVERLOADED, INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.

    If a few lbs is going to make a difference between crashing or not then they have a much bigger problem with the design of the vehicle.

    I wonder if they took into account the 3/10 of an ounce the sticker weighs too :rolleyes:
