Toyota Recalling 15,600 2007 Tundra Pickup Trucks

Toyota has announced that it is recalling 15,600 Tundra 2007 Tundra four-wheel-drive pickup trucks because “a rear propeller shaft may separate at the joint.”

“There is a possibility that a joint in the rear propeller shaft may have been improperly heat treated, resulting in insufficient hardness,” Toyota said in a statement.

There have been no accidents or injuries associated with the recall and last month the Tundra became the first truck named an IIHS “top safety pick.”
