Toyota announced a voluntary safety recall of about 8,000 four-wheel-drive 2010 Tacoma trucks in North America. Sources are speculating that certain vehicles from Ford Motor Co. and Nissan Motor Co. may also be involved in this recall. Toyota states the front shaft in a small production run of pickups may include a component that developed cracks during the manufacturing process. The automaker said Friday, as the vehicles are used, the cracks could lead to the separation of the drive shaft at the joint portion. Driving your Tacoma under these conditions may lead to serious injuries or fatalities due to the potential loss of control while driving your Tacoma. Toyota will offer the safety inspection and replacement at no cost.
