Toyota Recalls 2010 Tacoma

Toyota is recalling about 8,000 Tacoma pickup trucks from the 2010 model year to fix a problem with the front propeller shaft that could cause the vehicle to lose control.
The automaker told dealers Friday that a crack could develop that could lead to the front driveshaft separating and falling from the truck, causing the vehicle to lose control.
While small in number, the recall is the latest issued by Toyota, which has called back 8.5 million vehicles worldwide for faulty gas pedals and brakes. The recall involves 4-wheel drive Tacomas that were built from mid-December 2009 to early February 2010.
A notice to dealers says the part was manufactured by Dana Corp.
A Toyota spokesman says most of the vehicles are on dealer lots or in the distribution chain.

    Nice censorship WILX. I defend Toyota and you won't post it. Are you owned by GM or Ford?

    You people are idiots, except maybe Jim who's trying to be funny. Only 8,000 Tacomas were affected, and both rich and poor buy Toyotas. As for buying a Ford, how many million vehicles have been recalled by them? Remember Pintos, and faulty tires mounted on Explorers? Moreover, Tacomas are built in San Antonio, TX. Not exactly another country, although some might say it is.

    All you rich city folk driving your Toyotas thought you were better than everyone else all this time and guess what? You are the one getting screwed. Guess next time you better think harder where you buy your fancy, rich-people cars from. Buy American or move out.
