    • I do recall more than 261,000 vehicles are affected by a recall issued by Toyota, which reported that a brake component may not function properly and could kill thousands . Oh, I do recall the Volt fire that was proved to be caused by a wanna B Fireman who thought he could wire up his own 220 line in his garage and burnt his house down . I also remember certain 2000 through 2003 model year Tundra vehicles operated in cold climate areas with high road salt use, that did exhibit excessive corrosion on the frame rear cross- member. In the worst case, the spare tire stowed under the truck bed did become separated from the rear cross member. Spare tire separation will create a road hazard for following vehicles and increase the likelihood of a crash .Eventually, excessive corrosion of the rear cross-member may also affect the functionality of the rear brake line at the proportioning valve. If this occurs, it will lead to the loss of the rear brake circuits which will increase vehicle stopping distances and the risk of a crash which may kill thousands. Almost forgot the
