Summary
Toyota is recalling certain model year 2005-2009 Tacoma vehicles, manufactured from September 14, 2004, through August 29, 2008. Over time, steering wheel vibration may damage the spiral cable assembly (clockspring) that powers the driver's air bag module. If damage occurs, the air bag warning lamp will illuminate and the air bag may become deactivated.
Actions
Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will replace the spiral cable assembly, free of charge. An interim letter is expected to be mailed to owners during April 2012. Owners may contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.
