Toyota is recalling over 200,000 trucks because of a major problem!
According to USA Today, the Japanese automaker said Thursday that it would recall 228,000 U.S. units of the 2016 and 2017 model-year Toyota Tacoma. The recall includes about 250,000 units worldwide. The recently redesigned Tacoma, a mid-size pickup crucial to Toyota's lineup, could leak oil, possibly damaging the rear differential.
Toyota also issued a statement about the terrible things that could happen to your truck if the issue is not fixed, saying that it could "result in noise and reduced propulsion" and in some cases "could seize, resulting in a loss of control of the vehicle and increasing the risk of a crash."
Owners are encouraged to bring their trucks to their local dealer for a maintenance check and to fix the part.
Toyota is going to be notifying customers who have the affected trucks sometime in early summer.
