Toyota Recalls 51,000 Tundra Pickups

Toyota Motor Corp. has announced a recall of 51,000 Tundra pickup trucks.

According to company officials, certain 2011 Tundra full-size pickup trucks may feature a defect in their drive-shaft assemblies. The automaker says the vehicles’ rear drive shafts may include a part called a slip yoke that could break because of improper casting during the manufacturing process.

Toyota says the voluntary recall affects about 51,000 vehicles, but the problem may exist in only a fraction of 1 percent of that total.

The company says it has received one report of a drive-shaft slip yoke failure. There are no reports of accidents or injuries as a result of the auto defect.

As part of the recall, which is expected to begin next month, dealers will inspect the trucks to see if their drive shafts have the production-lot number of the affected parts. In some cases the rear drive shaft will need to be replaced.
