If you believe that your vehicle has
a defect which could cause a crash
or could cause injury or death, you
should immediately inform the
National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration (NHTSA) in addi-
tion to notifying Toyota Motor
Sales, U.S.A., Inc.
(Toll-free: 1- 800-331-4331).
If NHTSA receives similar com-
plaints, it may open a investiga-
tion, and if it finds that a safety
defect exists in a group of vehicles,
it may order a recall and remedy
campaign. However, NHTSA can-
not become involved in individual
problems between you, your deal-
er, or Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A.,
Inc.
