Rear Suspension Not Tightened Properly

Recall Details

Specific parts of the rear suspension may not have been torqued properly when installing the rear coil springs. As a result, the rear suspension arms may detach, increasing risk of a crash. The dealership will replace the bolts, nuts, rear suspension arms and rear suspension member sub-assembly free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

Certain components of the rear suspension may not be tightened properly. This can cause rear suspension arms to detach, increasing risk of a crash.

What Should You Do?

Recalls on your Scion must be performed by a Scion dealership. Scion notified owners of affected vehicles beginning in June, 2015. If you did not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Scion dealerships. They will also check for any other uncompleted recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
