Toyota’s big Tundra pickup, available in Australia through Performax International, has been recalled due to a potential problem with the vehicle’s steering.
Performax says that the tie rod ends are susceptible to excessive adjustment during a wheel alignment.
Should this occur, the thread engagement between the tie rod end and the steering rack may be unsafe, causing a steering vibration while driving.
Steering anomalies may pose a hazard to the vehicle occupants and other road users.
The offending Tundras were sold in Australia between June 2012 and April of this year, with more than 200 vehicles on the recall list.
The recall process will see the tie rod ends replaced. Owners can engage Performax to complete this task or, pending approval from Performax, arrange for a third party repairer to complete the work.
Performax will attempt to contact affected owners shortly, but any owner wishing to learn more about the latest round of recalls can contact Performax International on 1800 737 367 or 07 3085 0110.
