Toyota Recalls Some Pickup Trucks

By Jennifer Keiper, WLS-AM 890 News
(CHICAGO) Toyota is recalling thousands of pickup trucks because of a rear bumper problem.

Seventy-nine thousand Toyota Tundra pickup trucks from the 2016 and 2017 model years have to be fixed because the rear bumpers could break. The recall affects trucks sold in the US, Canada, and Central America.

The trucks have steps in the back that are made with resin brackets and if the truck is backed into something, that could damage the step and someone could be hurt if they use the compromised step.

Owners will get a letter starting mid-February and dealers will replace the resin brackets with steel.
