Toyota Tacoma Loses Bounce In Its Step

By  | 

The Toyota Tacoma has lost some of the bounce from its step when they filed a defect report. The report states that the 2005-2011 Toyota Tacoma and the Pre-Runner have defective leaf springs. The recall is said to feature around 711,000 trucks in the range. Letters were sent to the owners of the vehicles involved but the issue has been ongoing for 18 months now.

The suspension at the back of the Toyota Tacoma and Pre-Runner make use of leaf springs that have three or four leafs, however there has been a defect in the manufacturing. This means that the broken leaf could lose its position and contact any surrounding components, one of which is the fuel tank.

The fix for the Toyota Tacoma and Pre-Runner is fairly easy and technicians will replace the springs, without charge to the owner.

For the time being the Toyota Tacoma has lost some of the spring from its step but there is good news as Toyota say that a second letter has been sent out as parts are now in stock.
