Toyota is conducting a safety recall of around 46,000 2022 Tundra vehicles in the United States.
The Japanese automaker said the vehicles involved in the recall – including hybrid electric vehicles – have certain nuts that can loosen over time.
In some cases, these nuts can call off, potentially causing an axle shaft sub-assembly to separate from the axle, the company said in a statement. If complete separate were to occur, the company added, it could affect vehicle stability and brake performance, increasing the risk of a crash.
For the thousands of vehicles involved in this recall, Toyota dealers will inspect and retighten the axle flange nuts. Depending on the inspection, some axle-related components could be replaced altogether.
2022 Toyota Tundra vehicle owners will be notified by the end of the month, Toyota said.
