Two automakers issued new recalls affecting more than a combined 700,000 vehicles.

Toyota, which just recalled 280,000 vehicles in a separate event this week, issued a recall notice affecting 381,000 Tacoma pickups over a rear-axle issue.

Certain 2022 and 2023 trucks may have residual welding debris on the rear-axle assembly ends that could lead to the loosening of retaining nuts over time, causing a part to fall off and potentially resulting in a crash due to vehicle instability and compromised brake performance, the carmaker said.

Dealer service drives will inspect the assembly and retighten any loose retaining nuts free of charge. The company will notify owners by late April.

Jeeps

Chrysler, meanwhile, recalled certain 2021 to 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokees over a steering issue that could lead to loss of vehicle control.

The recall affects more than 338,000 vehicles whose steering wheel could fall outward if the steering knuckle and upper control arm ball joint separate.

Dealers will replace the control arm pinch bolts for free. The company plans to mail owner notifications on April 12.
