The second recall, announced on Tuesday, affected roughly 381,000 Toyota Tacoma pickup trucks from 2022 and 2023, according to the company.

Toyota said in a statement that welding debris left on the ends of the rear-axle assembly could “cause nuts to loosen over time and eventually fall off, potentially causing a part to separate from the axle.

“If separation occurs, this can affect vehicle stability and brake performance, increasing the risk of a crash,” Toyota said.

Amanda Roark, a spokeswoman for Toyota, said in an email that only the Tacoma model from 2022 and 2023 is “affected by this recall.”

“If the vehicle is operated with loosened nuts, the driver may experience a vibration, hear an abnormal noise, and/or observe leaking of differential oil,” she said.
