Toyota issued a recall on the lower ball joint due to the possibility of premature wear from improper finishing in production. The ball joints will be replaced under the recall. This recall applies to 2001-2004 models only. Please contact you local Toyota dealer to see if your vehicle is included.

Occasionally, the Check Engine Light may come on, this can be related to a failed air flow sensor. This type of fault is commonly repaired by cleaning or replacing the air flow sensor.

2001 Toyota Tacoma Recalls

Vehicles currently registered, or first sold in states where salt is used to de-ice the roads, are being recalled because a metal plate which helps secure the spare tire may rust excessively and break. This rust condition is a result of an insufficient coating of anti-corrosion material during the manufacturing process. If the plate were to break, the spare tire would come loose and fall from the vehicle while driving. Toyota is currently developing a remedy for this recall and will notify owners of affected vehicles when the remedy is in place. This is expected during December of 2012.

Toyota has recalled 2001-2004 Tacoma, 2002-2004 Tundra and Sequoia, and 2001-2002 4Runner models because the surface of the lower ball joints may have been scratched during assembly, which may have compromised their integrity. The ball joints may loosen and fall out and the driver may experience a loss of steering control. Dealers will replace the front suspension lower ball joints.

ON CERTAIN PICKUP TRUCKS, DURING SIDE IMPACT NCAP TEST (I.E. LINCAP TEST), A FLANGE AT THE REAR END OF THE DOUBLE CAB BODY DEFORMED AND INTERFERED WITH THE FUEL INLET HOSE THAT CONNECTS THE FUEL FILLER PIPE AND FUEL TANK, RESULTING IN DAMAGE TO THE FUEL INLET HOSE.

I bought my truck used with 87k miles and am now up to 145k, haven't had any problems. I use it for city commute as well as road trips (longest being 4500 miles in 6 days) without any significant complaints. One minor annoyance is the driver side door lock which gets stuck in the locked position occasionally. By far the most reliable and durable vehicle I have ever owned.
