Report: Toyota Tundra frame rust recall to go nationwide

WASHINGTON — Toyota says it will expand a recall announced last year to fix Tundra pickup trucks with frames that could rust.

Toyota spokesman Brian Lyons says the recall will cover Tundra pickups from the 2000-2003 model years. It expands upon a recall announced in November that covered 110,000 trucks registered in 20 "cold weather" states and the District of Columbia.

Lyons said dealers were notified Tuesday of the expanded recall that will cover the remaining 30 states. He said Toyota would provide more details on how many trucks are covered by the recall.

The government investigated excessive rust on Tundra frames last year after receiving complaints of corrosion that caused the spare tire, stowed under the truck bed, to separate from the frame.
