Recall roundup: Toyota Tacoma

Toyota has announced a recall for the 2001-2004 Tacoma pickup trucks because of a problem with the spare tire.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a total of 150,000 units of the Toyota Tacoma pickup trucks will be affected by this recall, and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers because of a problem with the spare tire. The NHTSA says that the spare tire on the models can get detached from the vehicle and it might hit another car.

“In these vehicles, the spare tire is stored underneath the rear bed and suspended by a spare tire carrier on a metal lift plate. During manufacture, the spare tire carrier lift plate may not have been sufficiently coated with phosphate”, as Toyota said in a statement.

The Japanese based automaker says that the affected pickup trucks are registered in 20 cold-weather states and in the District of Columbia. Two reports have been received of a spare tire from a Toyota Tacoma hitting another vehicle but no injuries have been reported yet. The recall is expected to begin in December, 2012. Meanwhile, owners of the above mentioned model are being advised to contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.
