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.
For vehicles modified by the addition of factory available vehicle accessories by Southeast Toyota Distributors, the load carrying capacity label affixed to the vehicle may not show accurate information. This is because the added accessory weight following installation was not accounted for on the existing label. As a result, the vehicle could be accidentally overloaded which could result in a crash.
When the anti-lock brake system, traction control system or stability control system activates due to driving conditions that necessitate it, the vehicle may lose control due to an issue with brake fluid pressure control. This could lead to loss of vehicle control and an accident.
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 windshield wipers could stop working because water could corrode a joint in the wiper linkage and cause it to separate.
When deployed due to a crash, the drivers side air bag may deploy abnormally, or the inflator can rupture. This could injure the driver.
The electric power steering can fail, which would result in extra steering effort.
Vehicles equipped with a trailer light module may turn off trailer lights automatically while in use.
