Toyota recall affects roughly 1500 Tocoma trucks in Canada

TORONTO | Toyota launched a recall notice on Thursday for its Tocoma 2016 and 2017 pickup pickup trucks sold in Canada.

According to the company, these vehicles could be affected by a rear differential leak.

“If a vehicle is continuously operated in this condition, the rear differential could become damaged, which can result in noise and reduced propulsion,” Toyota said in a statement. “In some cases the rear differential could seize, resulting in a loss of control of the vehicle and increasing the risk of a crash.”

USA Today reported Thursday that the Japanese automaker has yet to specify whether it’s received any complaints of crashes or injuries linked to the defect.
Owners of a Tocoma pickup truck are asked to go to their dealer where they will be inspected and repaired.

Approximately 15,000 vehicles are affected by this recall.
