There is a rumor that the bookies in Vegas are setting a line on the timing of the next Toyota recall. But no one is willing to lay off the odds.
Yes, they’ve done it again.
It’s another Toyota recall.
Worse for Toyota, it’s the Tundra this time.
You know the Tundra: the truck with the scored camshafts, the collapsing tailgates, the disappointing sales and the huge incentives.
This time it’s the prop shaft.
As in the “propeller shaft.” That’s where the driveshaft goes into the differential.
15,600 Tundras are being recalled because the prop shaft may separate at a joint in the shaft, the result of inadequate heat-treating to harden the parts.
Wow. They can’t even get a CV joint right.
No wonder they’ve decided to abandon lithium ion batteries.
