RepairPal Expert Overview:

During production, the incorrect lens was installed on the passenger front airbag status indicator. The indicator may not display the correct status. As a result, the vehicle occupants will not be made aware of whether or not the passenger front airbag is activated. Dealers will replace the affected lens in order to restore proper operation. This recall is expected to begin August 5, 2005. The Toyota recall number is 50K.

Suspension & Steering, July 5, 2005

RepairPal Expert Overview:

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.

For Models: Toyota Tundra

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.

For Models: Toyota Tacoma, Toyota Tundra
