Celical recall...?

Anyone hear about a recent recall for the celica? My friend who owns a 04 GT said he got a e-mail from TRD stating there is a recall on the 7th gen Celicas. He said something about "gear slipage"? Anyone know if this is really true? Anymore info?

Call up the dealer and give them your VIN and theyll tell you whether theres a recall or not.

how did they get your e-mail?

i got a letter in the mail saying there was a recall on late 02 and early 03 models on something that deals with the sensor in the gas tank. toyota just replaced my whole tank.

He said he has a friend at TRD. Thats who emailed him. He really didn't give me much info. on it though. He just said if your traveling at high speeds (80+ mph) and you are down shifting, theres a chance for the gear to slip into another one. Ex: down shifting from 5th to 4th, theres a chance to slip to another gear. I'm still not totally clear on it. I just wanted to see if anyone else has heard anything, before I took the time to research it further. (call a dealership etc.)
