Toyota is recalling the FJ Cruiser for the second time this year. The new campaign sees the vehicle being called back due to a headlight intensity issue. The affected vehicles were built between January 25m 2006 and February 23, 2013 and are fitted with a Toyota Auxiliary Driving Lamp Kits.
The extra lights use 55 Watt bulbs and when these are used together with the high beam, the resulting light surpasses the maximum limit allowed by the law. The excessive light can temporarily blind drivers of oncoming vehicles and thus seriously increase the risk of an accident.

Toyota is set to notify owners, with the recall scheduled to debut later this month. The automotive producer’s dealers will replace the 55 Watt bulbs with 35 Watt lights.

If you own one of the affected vehicles, you can contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.
