i love my 1998 prado but... the wheel fell off yesterday - luckily i was reversing out of the driveway. a recall for what seems to be the same problem exists for 2001-2002 models.

if you drive a 1998 prado and the steering feels different DO NOT DRIVE IT. i am now going to contact toyota and will post my progress with the repair of my beloved prado.

I have a 1996 Prado. Had it since new. I have had the recall for rear axle. Inside the driver's side door there is a sticker with Campaign Number: 6521D. I am about to sell mine in the next month. You should look for the sticker. Here is a trascript of the defect

Defect Details: Due to insufficient strength of the rear axle shaft flange, a crack may develop at the neck of the flange if the vehicle is operated in certain driving conditions, such as repeated high speed driving on winding mountain roads. If the vehicle continues to be operated in this condition, the crack may expand and in the worst case, the flange could fracture causing wheel separation.
