    TORRANCE, Calif., February 12, 2010 – Toyota Motor Sales (TMS), U.S.A., Inc, today announced it will conduct a voluntary safety recall to inspect the front drive shaft on a small production run of certain 2010 model year Tacoma 4WD trucks. The front shaft in approximately 8,000 vehicles may include a component that contains cracks that developed during the manufacturing process. As those vehicles are used, the cracks may eventually lead to the separation of the drive shaft at the joint portion.

    This condition only involves two specific front drive shaft production lot numbers installed in certain 2010 model year Tacoma 4WD vehicles. No other Toyota or Lexus vehicles are involved.

    Dealers will be instructed to perform an inspection to identify the specific lot numbers located on the front drive shaft. Based upon the inspection results, in a limited number of cases, the front drive shaft may need to be replaced.

    The inspection is estimated to take ten minutes. The inspection and/or replacement will be performed at no cost to the vehicle owner.

    Toyota will notify owners by first class mail starting in mid-March, 2010.
    Detailed information and answers to questions about issues related to this recall are available to customers at www.toyota.com/recall and at the Toyota Customer Experience Center at 1-800-331-4331..

    Anyone has a picture of where can we look for that front drive shaft ?

    So we can do the inspection ourselves.

    Thanks.

    No offense, but if you don't know where to find the front drive shaft, maybe you should just take it to the dealer to be on the safe side...
