Toyota Announces Third Recall For Same Issue With RAV4, Lexus HS 250h

 Tuesday, August 16, 2016

Toyota is recalling 337,000 cars and SUVs for the third time for the same problem, except this time dealers will use a different repair procedure on the vehicles. The 2006-2011 Toyota RAV4 and 2010 Lexus HS 250h vehicles were first recalled in 2012 after a federal investigation into rear suspension arm assembly failures on both the left and right sides. Some owners said the failures occurred while driving and caused the vehicles to go out of control. Toyota blamed the problem on rear suspension arm nuts not tightened to specification that allowed excessive play at the threaded part of the arm. Rust would then build up causing the rear suspension arm to separate.
