Default Toyota recalling 342k Tacomas due to faulty seatbelt pretensioners

Toyota Announces Voluntary Recall of Certain Tacoma Vehicles

TORRANCE, CA August 7, 2013 – Toyota Motor Sales, USA, Inc. today
announced that it will conduct a voluntary safety recall involving
approximately 342,000 Toyota Tacoma Access Cab vehicles, produced from
2004 to 2011.

In the involved vehicles, screws that attach the seat belt
pre-tensioner to the seat belt retractor within the seat belt assembly
for the driver and front passenger can become loose over time due to
repeatedly and forcefully closing the access door. If the screws
loosen completely, the seat belt pre-tensioner and the retractor
spring cover could detach from the seat belt retractor, which can
affect retractor and pre-tensioner performance.
