Toyota Motor North America Inc.
Models: Toyota Corolla Year: 2004
Number Potentially Involved: 381
Dates of Manufacture: July 1998 – July 2001
Defect: On certain passenger vehicles equipped with factory aluminum alloy wheels, the lug nut(s) may not secure the wheel properly to the hub assembly due to over-drilling of one or more of the five lug nut holes on the alloy wheel. If the vehicle is driven for an extended period in this condition, the lug nut(s) could potentially loosen. In the worst case, the stud bolt(s) may fracture, which may result in the separation of the wheel from the hub assembly and lead to a loss of vehicle control.
