2010 Toyota Tacoma 4-Wheel Drive Models May Have Cracked Shaft Part

Toyota will conduct a voluntary safety recall to inspect the front drive shaft on approximately 8,000 2010 model year Tacoma 4WD trucks.  The front shaft may include a component that contains cracks that developed during the manufacturing process.  As those vehicles are used, the cracks may eventually lead to the separation of the drive shaft at the joint portion.

This condition only involves two specific front drive shaft production lot numbers installed in certain 2010 model year Tacoma 4WD vehicles. No other Toyota or Lexus vehicles are involved. 

The inspection is estimated to take ten minutes.  The inspection and/or replacement will be performed at no cost to the vehicle owner.
