Recall Alert: 2006-2011 Toyota RAV4 and 2010 Lexus HS 250h

2010 toyota rav 4
Toyota issued a voluntary recall of 760,000 model-year 2006-11 versions of the RAV4 compact crossover and 18,000 model-year 2010 versions of the Lexus HS 250h hybrid sedan because of problems with the rear suspension nuts.

"Toyota 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," the automaker said in a statement. The rear suspension arm could separate, increasing the risk of an accident.

Toyota says it's developing a remedy and will begin notifying owners shortly. Dealers will replace the affected parts free of charge. Owners can call Toyota at 800-331-4331 and Lexus at 800-255-3987 or visit www.toyota.com/recall and www.lexus.com/recall.

How lucky for me. I just bought a used 2009 RAV4 Saturday. Now it goes in the shop.

You couldn't pay me to own a Toyota. If it's not sticky gas pedals, it's something else. They are doing everything they can to produce cars at the lowest possible cost. Garbage!

Yeah Toyota makes some real garbage. Let me guess you're an Obama supporter!

Oh boy...Godwin's law factor of .5 and rising...
