(MENAFN) Toyota spokesman, Brian Lyons, announced that the Japanese carmaker started to recall 150,000 Tacoma midsize pickups in the US, reported AP.

Lyons said that spare tires in trucks manufactured between the years 2001-2004 can drop from beneath the vehicles.

He stated that the move affects Tacomas in Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Virginia, Vermont, Wisconsin and West Virginia.

He explained that the plate used to grip the spare tire under the truck bed can rust after being exposed to road salt for a long time; moreover, it can break causing the tire to fall to the ground.

Lyons added that the problem resulted in 2 minor accidents and no injuries, noting that in these two cases, a tire fell and hit a vehicle behind the pickups.

It is worth noting that Toyota dealers will check and may replace the plates at no cost to the owners, while the carmaker will begin notifying owners by mail next month.
