Nearly 150,000 Toyota RAV4 vehicles recalled in Canada

By ,

Around 150,000 Toyota RAV4 vehicles from the 2006-2012 model years are being recalled in Canada to fix a problem with the lap-shoulder seatbelts in both second-row outboard seats.

 There is a possibility that, in the event of a very severe frontal crash, the lap belt webbing could contact a portion of the metal seat cushion frame, become cut, and separate. If this occurs, the seat belt may not properly restrain the occupant, which could increase the risk of injury.

Affected Toyota RAV4 owners will receive notification by first-class mail. Dealers will add resin covers to the metal seat cushion frame at no cost.
