Toyota is conducting a voluntary safety recall of certain 2004 through 2011 model year Tacoma Access Cab pickup trucks to fix a seat belt issue.

The automaker said the safety recall involves about 340,000 Toyota Access Cab vehicles in the U.S.

The problem

According to a statement released by Toyota, attachment screws that secure the seat belt pretensioner to the seat belt retractor within the seat belt assembly for the driver and front passenger can become loose over time. This condition is due to repeated and forceful closing of the access door.

If the screws completely loosen, this could negatively affect the safety technology’s ability to protect front occupants in a crash.

What Toyota will do

Toyota said it plans to notify owners of vehicles involved in this recall by first-class mail. Although the specifics of the remedy have not been released, the recall is expected to begin with the next few weeks.

In the meantime, owners of 2004 through 2011 model year Toyota Tacoma Access Cab vehicles with any questions or concerns may contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331. Detailed information on the recall is also available at www.toyota.com/recall.

  1. Lot's of people are saying this is a weak recall. That's hilarious.. so a recall for a critical safety item is a "lame recall" now? Only because it's jap crap and you think they should never be served a recall notice, right? Because when Ram recalls trucks to flash the ECU so the traction control will work better people trash them and flame them for a month afterward. But I guess this foreign japanese junk is allowed to be the worlds #2 recall issuer of vehicles and still retain their crown as "quality automaker", right?

    Give me a break....

    It would take Gigs of space to type up all the junk Toyota has put on the road in the past 20 years. Don't be blind. Japanese does not = perfection.
