Toyota Recalls Tacoma Trucks 228,000 Unites

Toyota Tacoma is a pickup truck manufactured in the U.S by the Japanese automobile manufacturer Toyota. Toyota offers a 2.7 Liter I4 paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission or the existing 5-speed manual and a 3.5-liter V6 which runs Toyota’s D-4S system switching from port to direct injection based on driving conditions and runs on the Atkinson cycle using VVT-iW variable valve timing. Toyota is recalling approximately 228,000 Units of Tacoma pickups in the United States because of an oil leak that can potentially cause the rear differentials to size and lock the rear wheels.

One of the most selling small pickup in America is Tacoma. “If a vehicle is continuously operated in this condition, the rear differential could become damaged, which can result in noise and reduced propulsion,” Toyota said in a statement. “In some cases the rear differential could seize, resulting in a loss of control of the vehicle and increasing the risk of a crash.”

The national highway traffic safety administration’s complaint database has several entries from owners who claim there is a loud noise coming from the rear of their trucks and Toyota says the problem can also result in reduced propulsion sort of a full seizure. Customer can loop up whether their car is included in the recall on Toyota website. The company says it’s already sending notice in the mail to affected customers. Toyota is encouraging drivers with affected trucks to bring them into a dealer to get checked out. If there is an issue the company says necessary parts will be replaced free of charge. Toyota said the minor services may be performed to ensure there is not an issue going forward.
