2012 Toyota RAV4 RecallsRear Seat Belts May Fail During Frontal Collision
The seat belts in the rear on the outboard positions may get cut by the seat cushion frame during an accident. Dealers will install a bumper over both rear seat cushion frames free of charge to resolve the concern.
The windshield wiper linkage could separate at a joint that corrodes due to water intrusion. Dealers will replace the water diverter channel that keeps water away from the affected joint and install a new revised linkage with a protective cover free of charge to resolve the concern.
The brake system contains an actuator that adjusts the fluid pressure to the brake at each wheel. An electrical component inside the actuator may experience an increased electrical resistance resulting in the illumination of various warning lights, including those for the Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) system, Antilock Brake System (ABS), and Traction Control system. As a result, these systems may not function as expected, reducing directional control assistance and increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will update the software for the Skid Control module to correct this concern.
