Our Quick Take:
In the event of a crash, the driver and/or front passenger seat belt retractor could come loose from its mounting, increasing the risk of personal injury.
What Should You Do?
Owners of affected vehicles will be notified by Toyota after a notification timeline has been developed. If you don't receive recall notification and you feel you should have, please contact your Toyota dealer. They may ask for your vehicle identification number (VIN), so please have it handy when you call.
The driver and passenger front seat belt retractors are located in the rear doors. If the rear doors are repeatedly closed with excessive force the door panel may crack. If cracks occur around to lower seat belt retractor anchor the retractor could come loose, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash. Toyota is currently developing a remedy for this problem.
