    • Vehicles Affected: 156,111

    • Vehicles Affected: 768,379

    Summary: On certain sport utility vehicles, due to a manufacturing issue in the front suspension lower ball joint, there is a possibility that the surface of the ball of the joint may have been scratched.

    Consequence: The lower ball joint may separate from the knuckle causing loss of steering control and a crash could occur.

    • Date Announced: MARCH 30, 2005
    • Vehicles Affected: 5,726

    Summary: Certain pickup trucks equipped with both vehicle stability control (vsc) and the trd dual exhaust systems. The trd dual exhaust system met all clearance specifications on models without vsc, however the driver's side exhaust located in a position where contact between a brake line found only on vehicles with vsc and the trd exhaust pipe might occur.

    Consequence: In this condition, the exhaust pipe flange may rub against the right rear brake line, which could cause brake fluid leakage. This could lead to an increase of vehicle stopping distance, which could result in a crash.

    Actions: Dealers will inspect and, if so equipped, will replace the trd dual exhaust system free of charge. During this replacement, the dealer will also inspect the specific brake line to assure it has not been damaged and replace it if necessary. The recall began on May 31, 2005.
