Engine, May 31, 2005

RepairPal Expert Overview:

On trucks equipped with the TRD dual exhaust and Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), there may be a clearance problem between the driver's side exhaust and a brake line that can wear a hole in the brake line. If this happens, brake fluid may leak, which could cause increased stopping distance and a crash. Dealers will inspect, and if equipped, will replace the TRD dual exhaust free of charge. They will also inspect for damage on the brake line, and replace it if needed. The recall began May 31, 2005. The Toyota recall number is 50E.
