The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has reported that Toyota Motor Corporation has issued a recall for several FJ Cruisers over an issue with the Toyota Auxiliary Driving Lamp Kits these vehicles are equipped with.

According to the federal agency, the 55-watt light bulbs in these kits are too bright, which could pose a risk since they could blind the driver in an oncoming car. If that occurs, the driver is more likely to be involved in an accident. To prevent crashes, the company will have all 55-watts light bulbs replaced for free. According to the federal agency, this lamp kit, which is mounted to the front bumper in the FJ Cruiser, does not comply with federal standards. This recall was made necessary to prevent a possible accident and keep drivers safe.

Any inspection or replacement should be performed at authorized dealerships.
