SHAFAQNA – Toyota is recalling 690,000 Tacoma pickup trucks in the US because of a potential vulnerability in the vehicles’ suspension systems. The firm said that leaf springs at the back of the trucks could fracture and come loose “due to stress and corrosion”.

The Tacoma recall applies to the following models:
