Toyota recalls certain ‘Rav4’ passenger vehicles
May 29, 2020
Toyota is carrying out a voluntary recall of certain ‘Rav4’ passenger vehicles.
Due to certain improper production conditions that occurred at the steel material supplier, a steel slab that was used to produce front lower arms may have had cracks on some portions of its surface. If a vehicle with an affected front lower arm(s) is driven frequently with rapid acceleration and deceleration over its lifetime, the cracks in the affected arms could propagate and the arm can eventually separate from the front wheel assembly. This may result in a loss of vehicle control and increase the risk of a crash.
The vehicles in question were manufactured between September 2019 and October 2019. There are approximately 224 vehicles affected on the Irish Market.
What to do:
Toyota Ireland will be writing directly to all affected customers advising them to make an appointment with their local dealer/authorised repairer, where all necessary repairs/replacement of parts will be carried out.
Consumers can check if their vehicle is involved in this recall campaign by contacting their local Toyota Dealer/Authorised Repairer or alternatively, you can check-online via the Toyota website .
