Toyota Recalls Certain Model Year 2016 and 2017 Tacoma Vehicles

June 01, 2017
PLANO, Texas, June 1, 2017 – Toyota Motor North America, Inc., announced that it is conducting a safety recall of certain Model Year 2016 and 2017 V6 engine Toyota Tacoma vehicles in the U.S. Approximately 32,000 vehicles are involved.
 
The V6 engine crankshaft timing rotor in the involved vehicles may have been produced with excessive anti-corrosion coating.  This could cause the crank position sensor to malfunction.  If this occurs, the vehicle may display a Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL), run roughly, misfire, or in some instances, stall.  A stalling condition while driving at higher speeds may increase the risk of a crash.
 
For all involved vehicles, Toyota dealers will replace the crank position sensors with new ones of an improved design at no cost to customers.  All known owners of the involved vehicles will receive a notification by first class mail starting in mid-July.
