Toyota Recalls 1994 Camrys Due to Steering Problems

Recall Details

Toyota is recalling 1994 Camry models because the steering wheel set nut may not have been sufficiently tightened, which may cause steering vibration and looseness. The nut may eventually come off, allowing the steering wheel to separate from the steering shaft. This can lead to a loss of vehicle control, which can increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will re-tighten the steering set nut.
