Vehicles Affected: More than 780,580 versions of the model-year 2006-11 Toyota RAV4 compact crossover and 2010 Lexus HS 250h compact hybrid sedan. Only vehicles manufactured between October 2005 and September 2010 are affected; check your vehicle's build date on the doorjamb sticker.
The Problem: Improperly tightened rear-wheel alignment nuts could cause unwanted movement in the rear suspension arm and allow rust to build. This could lead to thread damage, eventual tie-rod failure and the possible loss of vehicle control. This is an expansion of an earlier recall, and according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, "all vehicles that have been inspected and remedied under the previous recall need to be reinspected and have the appropriate remedy applied."
