PedalGate Update: Toyota recalls 8,000 2010 Tacoma 4wd pickups

Since it’s under so much scrutiny today, from the NHTSA to the Federal Government, as well as consumers worldwide, Toyota is quickly recalling about 8,000 2010 Tacoma pickups.  Only the four-wheel drive models are affected, and Toyota says that most of the recalled trucks are still in Toyota’s pipeline – namely dealer lots and distribution centers.  The problem stems from a cracked driveshaft that connects to the front wheels.  Over time, the cracks can become worse, leading to the drive shaft disconnecting from the vehicle.  Toyota says there are only a few lot numbers of affected drive shafts, so a quick dealer inspection will tell whether or not the truck has a faulty part.
