RepairPal Expert Overview
The rear suspension arms that support proper wheel direction adjustment and rear alignment adjustment may have lock nuts that are not properly secured. This can result in the arms failing and loss of vehicle control, which can lead to a crash.
Recall repairs on your Toyota or Lexus must be performed by a Toyota or Lexus dealership, respectively. Toyota and Lexus will notify known owners of affected vehicles beginning in September, 2016. If you did not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Toyota or Lexus dealerships. They will also check for any other incomplete recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
The rear tie rod adjusting lock nuts may not have been properly tightened after servicing. The rear arms may loosen and fail as a result. Dealers will replace both rear suspension arms and encapsulate the lock nuts free of charge to resolve the concern.
