2007 Toyota RAV4 Recalls
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.
For vehicles equipped with aftermarket accessory seat heaters, the seat heater elements in the front seats may short circuit if they are damaged by the seat cushion being compressed over time. This could result in a fire hazard.
The seat belts for the rear outboard seats may be cut by the seat cushion frame during a frontal collision, resulting in the rear seat occupants not being secured properly. This would cause increased risk of injury.
The driver's side power window master switch may overheat and melt, causing a possible fire hazard.
The seat heater may not work because of a damaged heating element.
The driver's front airbag may not deploy as expected in the event of a crash.
One or both rear tie rods could fail resulting in loss of vehicle control.
The power window master switch may overheat, melt, or possibly catch fire.
Toyota is recalling 2006 through 2011 RAV4 and 2010 Lexus HS250h passenger vehicles. During servicing of the rear suspension of your car, if the fasteners are not tightened properly, unwanted movement and rust can develop leading to component failure and loss of vehicle control.
The airbag warning light may illuminate, and the curtain shield airbag and seat belt pretensioner could be inadvertently activated. Inadvertent activation of airbag system components can cause injury to a vehicle occupant.
