Toyota recalls 340,000 Tacoma pickups amid seat belt concern
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Toyota is recalling more than 340,000 Tacoma pickup trucks due to a potential problem with seat belts.
The recall affects Tacoma Access Cab vehicles produced from 2004 to 2011.
In the vehicles, screws that attach the seat belt pre-tensioner to the seat belt retractor for the driver and front passenger can become loose over time. The company says if the screws loosen completely, the belt pre-tensioner and the retractor spring cover could detach from the seat belt retractor. This can affect how the retractor and pre-tensioner perform.
Owners of the vehicles will receive a notification by mail.
Customers can get more information by visiting www.toyota.com/recall or by calling the Toyota Customer Experience Center at (800) 331-4331.
