Toyota Recalls Almost 781,000 Models For Suspension Failure
Posted on Dec 10, 2015
According to filings with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Toyota is recalling almost 781,000 cars in order to fix suspension components that could possibly break loose.
The first recall was in August of 2012, this is the second time that the same vehicles have been recalled in the United States for loose nuts that attach the rear suspension arm to the wheels. The models recalled are the 2006-2011 Toyota RAV4 and the 2010 Lexus HS 250h.
The latest recall will require dealers to replace the rear lower suspension arms and seal them with epoxy, making the alignment permanent. Toyota claims that repair shops are to blame and that all bolts were properly tightened at the factory.
Dealers have limited parts and may not be able to complete the repairs until February. Owners can visit www.toyota.com/recall or www.lexus.com/recall, or call Toyota at 1-800-331-4331 or Lexus at 1-800-255-3987.
