15,600 Toyota Tundra’s are the latest trucks to come under the shadow – deep, dark, and ugly – of the R word.

Recall. The new Tundra joins its major Ford and Dodge competition in suffering a recall in the last couple weeks. Here are Toyota’s words:

“On certain 2007 model year Tundra vehicles, there is a possibility that a joint in the rear propeller shaft may have been improperly heat treated, resulting in insufficient hardness. In the worst case, a section of the rear propeller shaft may separate at the joint. There has been one case reported among all affected vehicles that may relate to this condition. The one case involved abnormal noise and did not involve an accident.”

Notification will begin late this month. To read about more about recalls, click here. Dodge’s and Ford’s stories are present.
