Toyota Safety Belt 9999
Toyota Motor Corporation
Safety incident date:
July 30, 2003
Snohomish, WA

we own a 2000 toyota tundra pickup. while researching the tether strap system behind the driver's side it was brought to our attention the guide bar has an opening facing towards the door that does not allow for the tether strap to be held securely. we had the dealer look at this and was told all tundras are made this way and that it is not a defect and that it could not be changed. this concerns me that i cannot utilize all safety features of my car seat in the pickup. i need to have two car seats in the truck so simply putting the car seat on the passenger side is not an option. i would like to see a way for that guide bar to be put in correctly so that it would guide the stap to the tether anchor that is available along the side of the floor. otherwise there should not be an anchor on the drivers side since it cannot be installed correctly because of the guide bar issue as it now stands.

0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Accident was reported to Police. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. Type of child seat code: convertible. Installation system code: vehicle safety belt.
