Toyota is voluntarily recalling 51,000 Tundra pick-up trucks regarding a defect that reportedly occurs in 0.05 percent of Tundras sold. A drive shaft component, known as the slip yoke, may have been casted incorrectly, leading to a possible part failure.
Although no injuries or deaths have been reported, Toyota is notifying dealers to be on the look out for a specific batch of part numbers, and instructing owners via first class mail on how to have their truck inspected. The process only takes 10 minutes, however the driveshaft may have to be placed, necessitating much more time in the shop.
Owners who wish to contact Toyota regarding the recall can do so at www.toyota.com/recall or by calling the Toyota Customer Experience Center at 1-800-331-4331.
