Toyota has issued a safety recall for the 2010-2014 Tacoma 2TR-FE model due to a faulty catalytic converter exhaust pipe. The included Tacoma models have been found to have a front catalytic converter with an increased risk of internal components becoming deteriorated. When the catalytic converter’s internal component deteriorates, it can begin to make a rattling sound. If this is not detected or put off, the deterioration can continue until the component dislodges to restrict the flow of exhaust fumes. When this happens, you might see a dashboard check engine light illuminated. Depending upon the level of restriction in the exhaust, the vehicle can experience reduced power. To remedy the risk, Toyota has engineered a new catalytic converter exhaust pipe to prevent the risky condition.
Modern highways and vehicles are subjected to regulatory oversight to advance overall safety on the roads. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is the regulatory authority that works alongside major auto manufacturers to find enhanced risks for correction that mitigates that risk. If a vehicle component is found to carry an excessive risk, the auto manufacturer is responsible for providing the corrective service that reduces the risk. Rest assured that if a Toyota vehicle is included in a safety recall, we can provide the corrective repair quickly, conveniently, and free of charge to our customers.
