Toyota has recently announced recalls affecting 661,000 of its trucks and SUVs due to concerns with axle failures and transmission issues. Spanning across two separate recalls, these issues are related to the vehicles' drivelines. reports the following details:

"The largest recall covers approximately 381,000 Tacoma pickups from 2022 and 2023, according to Toyota. In a statement, the company says the rear axle assembly on some trucks could have welding debris on the ends, left during the manufacturing process. This could cause retaining nuts to loosen and possibly come off. Should that happen, Toyota states vehicle stability and braking performance might be negatively affected.

The second recall is a bit smaller, at 281,663 vehicles. But it covers more models. The Toyota Tundra (including Tundra Hybrid) and Lexus LX600 from 2022 through 2024 and Sequoias for 2023 and 2024 could experience unexpected movement if shifted into neutral. According to Toyota, clutch discs in the transmission may not immediately disengage in neutral. This could cause the vehicle to creep forward slowly, up to 4 mph. Toyota doesn't mention any injuries or collisions related to this issue, but there are five field reports and one warranty claim."
Before the sliding floor mat debacle didn't Toyota have a motto, "Going Forward (whether you want to or not)" ?
