Here is the literature from www.nhtsa.gov

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

Body Damage is Cool

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.
