Toyota has issued a safety recall campaign for several models outfitted with risky seatbelts, including the RAV4 EV and RAV4 models. The faulty seat belts are located at the second row’s outboard seats and have been found to carry an undue risk if the belt webbing contacts the metal seat frame. If this happens, the seatbelts may not function properly in a severe front-end collision.
Toyota will provide free corrective maintenance on all models included. The corrective safety recall service will fix the problem by adding a resin cover to the metal portion of the seat frame. Toyota safety recall service must be provided at a Toyota service department and is always free for our customers.
This Toyota recall includes over 1.1 million vehicles between 2006 – 2014, including a range of years for the RAV4 and RAV4 EV as follows:
