If in doubt, contact the regional Toyota folks for your area; you can find their contact information via Toyota's website. Remember these are being made in more than one plant in the US now.

I got my recall a month ago. A week after one of the ball joints popped out and I replaced it. The dealer told me that the lift wasn't a problem. If you haven't done it get it done. You don't want to be driving down the highway when one of those joints gives out.

Does this recall include 2003 AWD Highlanders?

I was parked a couple days ago and upon leaving and steering I heard a knock from the front end and noticed my 4X4 indicator flashing and my cruise control not working (light for cruise ok but not flashing) Seems to steer fine but going to take it in the morning. I wonder if this problem would relate to my truck's symptoms.

Call Toyota and have your VIN handy.

How come my truck(2000 tacoma) doesn't fall under this recall!? Last week driving down the street at 30mph my driverside lower ball joint snapped right off and sent my truck sliding on the frame and lower suspension. Luckily I didn't hit anything. The part failed, therefore toyota should be responsible. I STRONGLY RECOMEND REPLACING BOTH SIDES! I got about 130K mi on my tacoma.

Recalls are based on what is reported to be faulty up to a certain percentile of vehicles. If your local dealership won't give you a satisfactory answer, then a call to the regional office is in order; have your VIN handy, be calm, take pictures, and find out if the recall has been expanded to include your vehicle. You should be able to find the regional Toyota service center for your area via Toyota's website.

The particulars of this recall can be found in our Toyota tech archive; make sure you expand your viewing selection to see it (lower left of screen there).

Glad you weren't hurt; good luck!

I hadn't heard from the dealer from whom I purchased my '04 Tacoma, so I called them today. He ran the VIN and said this campaign did not apply to my truck (it doesn't apply to all VINs).

Is he blowing smoke, or have others had the same experience?


Ok, I've checked with 3 different dealers in 2 different states and each one says my truck is not part of the recall. This does not appply to all VIN's...........
