Toyota RAV4 Recall Impacts 760,000 Crossover SUVs
Toyota has announced a voluntary recall of 760,000 RAV4 crossover SUVs built for the 2006-2011 model years to address a problem with rear suspension arms that could rust, wear, and separate. The problem is caused when the nuts on the rear suspension arm are improperly tightened during a rear wheel alignment service. If the service technician does not adhere to proper procedure and torque specification, the nuts can loosen, allowing rust to form. If rust forms, the suspension arms can prematurely wear and break.
Toyota says it is busy developing a remedy for the problem, and will notify owners just as soon as dealers are ready to resolve the issue. In addition to the 760,000 RAV4 models impacted by this recall, Lexus is asking about 18,000 HS 250h owners to return to the Lexus dealer for the same problem.
But since you’re a Speedy Daddy, you don’t own one of those.
