Two separate Toyota recalls affect nearly 250 units. Covered by the recall are:
- 230 model-year 2015 Yaris hatchbacks
- 20 model-year 2015 Tacoma TRD Pro model pickup trucks
In Yaris vehicles, the bolts holding the rear axle bearing may not be tight enough. If one of the fasteners falls off, it may damage the rear brakes. In this condition, a wheel may lock up.
Vehicles affected by the second recall were distributed to dealers in Puerto Rico without the correct B-pillar tire placard indicating the tire size and recommended cold tire inflation pressure for the front and rear tires. If the tire is not inflated properly, it may cause a crash.
Neither of two separate Toyota recalls has resulted in collisions and injuries. The affected owners will be notified about the recalls. Toyota dealers will fix the problems for free. You can contact the automaker at 1-800-331-4331 for more information.
