Recall Alert : 2006-2011 Toyota RAV4

RECALL Subject : Rear Suspension Arm (Tie Rod) Corrosion

Report Receipt Date: AUG 12, 2016
NHTSA Campaign Number: 16V596000
Component(s): SUSPENSION
Potential Number of Units Affected: 337,449


Manufacturer: Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing

SUMMARY:
Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (Toyota) is recalling certain model year 2006-2011 Toyota RAV4 vehicles manufactured October 31, 2005, to September 7, 2010, and 2010 Lexus HS250h vehicles manufactured July 6, 2009, to August 26, 2010. The affected vehicles have rear suspension arms (rear tie rods) with adjusting lock nuts that may have been improperly tightened after servicing. As a result of being loose, the arm may have thread damage and may rust, possibly leading to the failure of the arm and an abrupt change in the vehicle's alignment.
CONSEQUENCE:
Failure of the rear tie rod could cause a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash.
REMEDY:
Toyota will notify owners and dealers will replace both rear suspension arms and encapsulate the locknuts, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin September 30, 2016. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-800-331-4331. Toyota's numbers for this recall are G0V for Toyota vehicles and GLK for Lexus vehicles. Note: This recall supersedes recall 13V-383, in which some vehicles were only inspected, sealed, and did not have both arms replaced. The affected vehicles were previously recalled under 13V-383, but did not have both rear suspension arms replaced at that time. Those vehicles need to have both arms replaced as part of this recall remedy.
