Millions of vehicles have now been recalled by Honda, Toyota, and other major auto-makers because airbags exploded, failed to deploy, opened without warning, or had other problems that can cause severe injury or even death.

Toyota has told North American dealers to stop selling six popular models with heated seats because a soft material beneath the seat covers does not comply with U.S. safety standards.

Toyota Tacoma Recall attorneyToyota recalls 690,000 Tacoma trucks for rusty leaf springs, fire risk:

Toyota has announced a recall of 690,000 Tacoma pickups from model years 2005 through 2011. The affected vehicles include both the four-wheel-drive model and the two-wheel-drive PreRunner (but not the standard 4x2 pickups), which may have a rather serious problem with their rear suspensions.
In some cases, corrosion and stress could cause one of the three or four leaves in the rear suspension's leaf springs to fracture. While the trucks can still be driven with a broken leaf, Toyota is concerned that it could move out of position and impact other components in the rear of the truck, with a particular focus on the fuel tank. Needless to say, but a piece of metal continuously impacting anything, let alone the fuel tank, is cause for concern.

Toyota has recalled 342,451 Tacoma Access Cab vehicles due to a defect in the rear seat belts installed. The models involved in the recall are from 2005-2011.

These Toyota Tacoma Access Cab vehicles were manufactured September 14, 2004 through March 29, 2010; and between July 1, 2010 and September 7, 2011. The problem with the rear seat belts is with the screws.
Toyota has found that if the access doors are repeatedly and forcefully closed, the screws that attach the seat belt pre-tensioner to the seat belt retractor can loosen over time. If the screw comes loose completely from the system, the seat belt pre-tensioner could detach from the seat belt assembly. If this occurs, there will be a compromise in seat belt safety for rear passenger occupants. The seat belt pre-tensioner will not performed as designed by Toyota engineers, and this will increase the risk of severe injury in a crash. According to Toyota representative, Cindy Knight, "The issue is the result of a design flaw, rather than a manufacturing defect." Knight added that "no accidents or injuries have been reported" because of this 'design flaw'.

Toyota Announces Recall of Certain Model Year 2013-2014 Tacoma Pickup Trucks:

The recall revolves around the engine valve springs in the 2013 and 2014 Tacoma, specifically those fitted with the standard 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine and not the optional 4.0-liter V6. The issue is that the valve springs are prone to cracking and breaking over time, and results from improper maintenance of the manufacturing equipment used by one of the two suppliers that outfit Toyota with the components in question. Some 4,000 vehicles are subject to the voluntary recall.

Toyota issues recall for 150K Tacoma pickups over possible spare tire trouble:

Toyota has recalled certain model year 2001 through 2004 Tacoma light trucks manufactured from August 28, 2000, through August 27, 2004, and originally sold, or currently registered, in the following cold climate states with high road salt usage: Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and the District of Columbia.
The spare tire in the subject vehicles is located underneath the rear of the vehicle and held by a spare tire carrier. A lift plate on the carrier is used to help raise, lower and retain the tire. During its manufacture, the lift plate may not have been sufficiently coated with anti-corrosion materials. If the plate is insufficiently coated and the vehicle is operated in cold climate regions where road salts are frequently used, road spray can reach the carrier assembly and corrode the lift plate.
Corrosion of the plate could cause it to break, which could result in detachment of the spare tire from the vehicle. Detachment of the spare tire could result in a road hazard which may increase the risk of a vehicle crash.
