Toyota Motor North America Recalls More Than 200,000 Trucks
The Recall Reaper is back in action. This time, he’s taking on Toyota trucks.
Toyota Motor North America has announced a recall that affects 228,000 2016 and 2017 Toyota Tacoma pickup trucks.
The involved vehicles have rear differentials that may leak oil. If a vehicle is continuously operated in this condition, the rear differential could become damaged, which can result in noise and reduced propulsion. In some cases, the rear differential could seize, resulting in a loss of control of the vehicle and increasing the risk of a crash.
This doesn’t sound like fun at all. Of course, Toyota dealers will be sending out notices to the affected owner to bring their trucks in for a check of the systems affected.
