2022 Toyota Tundra recalled for potential axle separation

2022-07-02 03:57:13 By : Mr. Leo Dai

Toyota is recalling 46,176 examples of its redesigned 2022 Tundra pickup — standard gasoline engine and hybrid alike — to address a potential issue with the rear end that can lead to axle separation. Per Toyota, some Tundras were shipped with rear axles that may have left the factory with flange nuts that were not properly tightened.

"If the vehicle is operated with loosened nuts, the operator may experience vibration, hear an abnormal noise, and/or observe leaking of differential oil," Toyota said. "If an axle shaft sub-assembly completely separates, this can affect vehicle stability and brake performance, increasing the risk of a crash."

The issue pertains only to a fraction of rear axle assemblies that were installed, but Toyota is not able to identify them individually, hence the rather broad recall population. As of March, Toyota had sold just over 22,600 Tundras this year, some of which were likely leftover 2021 models, so presumably the balance of the 46,000 in the recall population have been sold in the second quarter, which hasn't been reported yet. Also, Toyota's recall notice indicated that some of the vehicles being recalled were shipped overseas.  The 2022 entered production at the end of December.

Toyota is in the process of notifying dealers and owners. Notifications should arrive in July.

India's rice farmers have planted 4.3 million hectares with the grain so far this season, farm ministry data showed on Friday, down 27% from the same period last year after lower than usual June rainfall. India is likely to receive monsoon rainfall between 94% and 106% of the long-term average in July, the most crucial month for the planting of summer crops.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's party is returning to power in the country's richest state, Maharashtra, giving it a fillip ahead of the 2024 national election after an unlikely ruling alliance of parties crumbled after more than two years. Modi's Bharatiya Janata Party will now form the government in Mumbai's home state along with a faction of the regional Shiv Sena party, which surprised analysts by tying up with ideologically opposed parties such as Congress after the 2019 state election to oust the BJP. Both the BJP and the Shiv Sena draw their support mainly from the majority Hindu community.
