These voluntary recalls will affect approximately 99,000 RAV4 (2006
to early 2011 model year) and 1,100 Lexus HS 250h
(2010 model year only). The automaker has determined that if the nuts on the rear suspension arm are not tightened following the proper procedure and torque specification during a rear wheel alignment service, excessive play may occur at the threaded portion of the arm, followed by rust formation. If this were to occur, the threaded portion of the rear suspension arm may wear and cause the arm to separate.
This Fall, affected owners will receive a first class mail notification letter, advising them to make an appointment with an authorized Toyota or Lexus dealership for a no charge fix.
