- More Problems for Toyota as 8,000 Tacoma Trucks Recalled
Toyota as a brand has been taking a beating in recent weeks as a result of several different recalls that have affected millions of vehicles. Problems that include defective accelerator pedals on several Toyota models and braking systems on the Toyota Prius have led to these circumstances. Now comes word that Toyota is issuing yet another recall, and this one centers on 8,000 Toyota Tacoma trucks that are believed to have serious problems with their drive shafts. These developments have led to calls for help to Toyota recall lawyers all over the United States as different problems have affected different sets of consumers.
The Reason for the Toyota Tacoma Truck Recall
Toyota has initiated this latest recall of 8,000 Toyota Tacoma trucks because of a problem with a part in the drive shaft of 2010 Toyota Tacomas. Specifically, this part in the drive shaft has showed a tendency to crack and cause the front drive shaft to separate from the vehicle and fall out altogether. When this occurs, the driver of the vehicle will lose control of the direction of the truck and be placed in a situation of immediate and extreme danger. As is usually the case with defective vehicles, there will be no warning provided for the driver before the defect takes hold and causes potential harm.
All of the affected vehicles are 2010 4-wheel-drive models of the Toyota Tacoma, and the models at issue were manufactured between December of 2009 and February of 2010. Toyota has stated that most of the models in question are already either on dealer lots or further along in the distribution chain that ultimately ends with the consumer. The specific part in question that’s believed to be defective is manufactured by the Dana Corp. Anyone who is driving such a model is advised to stop doing so and to see the nearest Toyota dealer for repairs.
There is no telling how many more, if any, issues will arise with Toyota vehicles. If you or someone you love has been harmed or encountered unreasonable risks as a result of driving a defective Toyota, you need to contact the Toyota recall lawyers at Phillips Law Group as soon as possible to schedule a free initial consultation.

Sophia H. at Phillips Law Group has been an absolute joy to work with -quick, responsive, and professional in every interaction. Her breadth of knowledge, from administration to IT to finance, is nothing short of impressive.
Phillips is the best!! Love all that they do to give back to the community and how much they help those who are experiencing homelessness. ❤️
Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value As someone who is familiar with the inner workings of the auto insurance industry I can whole heartedly endorse Steven J. Jones and Phillips law group as someone I would want on my side should litigation take place. They handled my case professionally, honestly, and with satisfactory results which I would not have expected without enlisting their help.
Two family members were in a bad wreck a couple of years ago, and as a result called Phillips Law to represent them. Montana Thompson was the attorney assigned to the case with the help of Nemo Farr as legal assistant. Mr. Thompson litigated a very generous settlement for both my stepdaughter and her son. Because my grandson is a minor, I decided to act as conservator for him to ensure the settlement was safe and secure. Montana helped with that process, but it was Nemo who went way above and beyond the call in finding a financial institution to use for the restricted account. There were some glitches in that process but Nemo helped navigate them with a calm expertise which belies his age. I would consider them both great representatives of the level of commitment to their clients and assets to their firm.
Liz Gonzales was great!!!!
My Attorney Sean Davis and his paralegal Hannah Dustin worked on my case. They listened to the problems that I was having with my case and they both got right to work. First they found me a doctor that actually listened to my problems from my car accident and worked quickly to form a plan that was comfortable for me and the doctor. The doctor was the best and after a couple of procedures the pain in my neck was gone. Behind the scenes Sean and Hannah were working hard to get my case settled with the insurance company. They kept in contact with me on all aspects of my case. They settled my case much faster than I expected and for more than I was expecting. If you want two real professional legal people to work on your case, I would highly recommend Sean and Hannah to you. I cannot say enough nice things about these two. Thank you so much, Rickey Hart .
Great experience! Took care of pretty much everything, and I always felt like I want in good hands. Caroline Fa. was also a great help with everything. She always returned my calls and I never felt unheard. Even after my case she would still help me with my insurance documents.
Sophia H is very helpful.
I’ve been working at Phillips Law Group for nearly four years and I can confidently say this is the best personal injury firm in Arizona to work for. The firm is the best for numerous reasons but to start, Phillips Law Group gives employees opportunities for promotions and growth. I started working within the settlement department, moved to a paralegal assistant and grew to be a pre-litigation paralegal with my own case load. Each attorney I have worked for is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to talk to. Secondly, I love how Phillips Law shows appreciation for employees. They host Friday Zoom Huddles giving out PTO, goodie bags, special shout outs, bonuses and gift cards. They also host extravagant holiday parties and fun contests during the Holidays! Lastly, the firm cares about giving back to the community, which is a trait I value as well. It’s rewarding to see a fast paced firm taking time out of their busy day to pay it forward. I would highly recommend working at Phillips Law Group!
Definitely recommend! Awesome
