    actually the recall is for, the us government wants the switch on the dashboard to light up when reaching a certain air level of there choosing, Toyota states the pressure, but lights at a different reading that Toyota thought was sufficient, wow, front page news

    @Jerry: It's a long title because it includes a lot of models, and we try to give people the news they need at a glance. As for tone, please do me the honor of re-reading the piece. I could've easily kicked it off with "yet another Toyota recall", but since this issue has nothing to do with the Toyota recalls that have been making headlines, that would've been disingenuous.

    It's great that you're such a devoted Toyota fan, but you really shouldn't take recalls personally.

    Yet another trumped up title to sensationalize a Toyota issue. A "real" journalist would have titled it: "Certain Toyota Trucks and SUV's Recalled Due to Faulty Tire Pressure Monitors" Instead, you get a long, vague title that intimates complete safety failure... Nice work Mr. Read. In case you haven't noticed were all sick of this hack reporting in the media.

    I have had many problems with my 05 4runner loosing air and going flat due to these special valves. And the valves are not cheap. The local Toyota dealer just kept adding air and would not do anything about it(even when it was under warranty). Wrote the address in the book and never did get a reply. Also, posted it on the govt. safety site.
    Had to pay for them myself. Traveling across country, they would loos air.
    No more 100k warranty or any more Toyota vehicles in my future.'

    My God, what a con this company has worked on gullible American consumers with its cant about its "amazing" quality.

    Bob is right - and a $3.00 gauge was what I kept in my glove box to monitor the monitor, since the one on my '04 4Runner was constantly saying the tire pressure was low. One of the many reasons I finally dumped it out of frustration.

    Just another example of having to dummy down for the driving public. Giving them a false sense of security or able to off load responsibility. I would not trust the reading without checking with a $ 3.00 tire gauge.
