Lexus Recall : Toyota/Certification/Gvwr

2003 Lexus GX 470

The certification label does not meet the information requirements as described in the regulations.

Equipment — Other — Labels

Summary
Certain sport utility vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of part 567, "certification." The incorrect gross vehicle weight rating (gvwr) data was printed on the certification regulation label. The gvwr is incorrectly reflected on the label as 6,100 lbs. The correct gvwr should be 6,000 lbs.
Actions
As each label is vehicle identification number specific, owners will be requested to contact their local Lexus dealer first to place an order for the corrected label. Once the label has arrived at the dealership, the owner will be contacted for label replacement. Owner began April 10, 2003. Owners who take their vehicles to an authorized dealer on an agreed upon service date and do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Lexus at 1-800-255-3987.
