Anyone heard from Toyota about the 4 Runner/Tacoma recall? Thought we was to hear something from them, this month.

If you're referring to the lower ball joint SSC, it will be going on thru December. Expect a letter sometime between now & then. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" />

Thanks Geek!
I think it was for the 2002 4 Runners and Tacomas.

AZRain, thanks for the sticky! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />

Some linkys; please note year of vehicles in articles:

http://www.autobuyguide.com/2001/12-aut/toyota/tacoma/recalls/

http://auto-recalls.justia.com/content/05V225000-TOYOTA-4-RUNNER-2002.html

http://www.internetautoguide.com/auto-recalls/67-int/2004/toyota/tacoma/base/

Also keep an eye on www.alldata.com; I haven't seen the recall update in the TSB section yet. Hopefully they'll catch up.

A also saw something about a 2005 recall for tightening some kind of nut on the e-brake pedal of some new rigs; might ask if you've not seen anything yet.

I agree, thanks for the "sticky", it's unusual to see a Toyota be recalled.

Took my 02 in for oil change and dealer actually told me my 02 falls under the recall. having it done later this week. i was waiting to get a letter from toyota first but i guess dealer's actually on top of things for once <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" /> they said should take a couple hours, ball joint and alignment

<img src="/forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />As others have probably already seen, I found this article on the MSN homepage today. It doesn't seem to mention anything about late model gen 3 4runners, but does include model years 1990-1995. Are there 2 different recalls, or are these for the same issue? link to article is below.
