Toyota is recalling approximately 46,176 model-year 2022 Tundra and Tundra Hybrid vehicles. The flange nuts on the axle shaft sub-assemblies can loosen over time and potentially cause one or both axle sub-assemblies to separate from the axle housing. Axle shaft separation can cause a loss of vehicle stability and brake performance, increasing the risk of a crash.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on July 15, 2022. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 800-331-4331 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To resolve the issue, dealers will inspect the rear axle assembly, tighten the axle flange nuts, and replace any damaged axle-related components, if necessary.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
