Toyota recalling about 51,000 Tundra trucks
TORRANCE, Calif. (AP) - April 26, 2011 (WPVI) -- Toyota is recalling about 51,000 of its Tundra trucks to inspect rear drive shafts that may include a component that could break.
Toyota Motor Sales USA Inc. said Tuesday an estimated 0.5 percent of the vehicles may have a faulty slip yoke because of improper casting during the foundry process.
The company is aware of one slip yoke failure. There are no reports of accidents or injuries related to the condition.
The recall involves only Tundras from the 2011 model year.
Recall notification letters will be sent out starting next month and will be available on Toyota's web site.
Inspections and any replacements made will be free of charge.
Last week Toyota recalled more than 300,000 RAV4 and Highlander vehicles so it could fix an airbag issue.
