12/14/2007 -- Torrance, CA -- Toyota Motor Sales (TMS), U.S.A., Inc., will launch a safety recall with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) on certain 2007 model year Tundra four-wheel-drive pickup trucks.

The one case involved abnormal noise and did not involve an accident.

Owners will be notified via first class mail beginning in late-December 2007. Owners are requested to contact their local Toyota dealer for inspection upon receiving their notification.
