Car Recalls

Recalls are issued for cars with safety-related defects or problems

2004 Toyota Tacoma recalls

 

Body, Interior & Misc., November 23, 2012

RepairPal Expert Overview:

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.
