Toyota recalls 790,000 Tacoma pickup trucks
U.S. automaker Toyota recalled 790,000 Tacoma pickup trucks from the 2005-11 model years worldwide, including about 690,000 in the United States.
This huge recall was vital for Toyota as a back suspension part within this model was credible to break and possibly damage the gas tank or break line. The automaker cleared out the predicament its facing, where it affirmed in a press release on Monday that “The broken leaf could move out of position and contact surrounding components, including the fuel tank”.
Until now, Toyota is unaware of any accidents or injuries related to the defect although some owners told the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that they had had close calls.
In fact, one Tacoma owner wrote to the safety agency this past June: “A broken leaf spring cut my brake line, and my brakes stopped working with my 8-year-old child in the truck.”
“I had already replaced a leaf spring on the other side. This could have caused a very serious accident. Luckily, the brakes still had some fluid in them,” the owner added.
Last Friday, automaker rival Ford Motor recalled around 850,000 vehicles including two of its most popular models to fix an electric glitch.
