Recall Alert: 2011 Toyota Tundra Pickup

April 26, 2011

Toyota is announcing a voluntary safety recall for certain 2011 Tundra pickups, based on a rear driveshaft production lot number.

At issue is a slip yoke that may have been improperly cast during the manufacturing process, and Toyota is aware of just one failure to date in a customer owned vehicle. No accidents or injuries have been reported as a result of this condition, and no other Toyota or Lexus vehicles are impacted by the recall.

Toyota says while approximately 51,000 Tundra pickups will be recalled, less than five one-hundredths of a percent are expected to have the potentially defective part.

Owners of 2011 Tundra pickups affected by the recall will begin receiving notifications in May, and the inspection at a Toyota dealer should only take ten minutes. If your vehicle is found to have a component from a potentially defective lot, service time will be determined by dealer workload. Tundra owners with questions or concerns can find additional information at, or they can contact Toyota’s customer service at (800) 331-4331.
