Vehicles Affected: Approximately 690,000 model-year 2005-11 Toyota Tacoma 4×4 midsize pickups and 4×2 PreRunner models.
The Problem: The rear suspension leaf springs can possibly crack due to corrosion and fatigue and break free of the spring pack. If a broken leaf comes loose, it can potentially make contact with surrounding parts or the fuel tank. In the presence of an ignition source, a fire could result. Toyota is unaware of any of any fires, crashes or injuries related to this condition.
The Fix: Owners will be notified by mail and can take their vehicle to a local dealer for an inspection and repair at no cost.
What Owners Should Do: Owners can call Toyota at 800-331-4331 or visit toyota.com/recall for more information.
