|US NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID:||03V146|
|Potential Number Of Units Affected:||123,360|
On certain double cab pickup trucks, during side impact NCAP testing, a flange at the rear end of the double cab body deformed and contacted the fuel inlet hose that connects the fuel filler pipe and fuel tank, resulting in damage to the fuel inlet hose. This damage could result in fuel leakage, which could result in a fire in the presence of an ignition source.
Dealers will install a fuel hose protector on the body flange. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during June 2003. Owners may contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.
