2001 Toyota Tacoma Recalls
The metal plate that helps secure the spare tire may rust excessively and break. As a result, the spare tire could come loose while driving, creating a road hazard.
Toyota has not yet developed a remedy for this recall, owners of affected vehicles will be notified when a remedy is in place. If you notice the spare tire is not secure, or you don't receive notification and you feel you should have, please contact your dealer. It’s helpful to have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.
Two wheel drive vehicles with a white letter tire upgrade option may experience tire failure from improper installation.
Toyota notified owners of affected vehicles starting in July 2001. You can check with your dealer to see if your vehicle is involved in this program. It is helpful to have your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) on hand when you contact them.
