Toyota recalls over 380,000 Tacoma trucks over increased risk of crash, safety issue

Toyota is recalling approximately 381,000 of certain 2022 and 2023 Toyota Tacoma trucks due to an increased risk of crash.
Toyota is recalling approximately 381,000 of certain 2022 and 2023 Toyota Tacoma trucks due to an increased risk of crash.

Toyota has issued a recall notice for certain Toyota Tacoma trucks in the U.S. due to an increased risk of crash, the company announced Tuesday.

Approximately 381,000 of certain 2022 and 2023 Toyota Tacoma trucks are involved in the recall.

According to the recall notice, welding debris left on the ends of rear axle assembly during manufacturing could cause certain retaining nuts to loosen over time and eventually fall off, which could cause a part to separate from the axle. That could affect the vehicle's stability and brake performance, which could increase the risk of crash.

Toyota says dealers will inspect the rear axle assembly and retighten the axle retaining nuts for the vehicles involved in the recall at no cost. Any axle components already damaged from the condition will be repaired or replaced if necessary, Toyota said.
