A number of Lexus HS 250h four-doors and Toyota RAV4 crossovers are being recalled due to potential issues with the rear suspension.
2006-2011 Toyota RAV4 and 2010 Lexus HS 250hThe Problem: Toyota has found that both vehicles may develop suspension issues following a rear wheel alignment service. The rear suspension arm could move around excessively if the nuts aren’t reinstalled and torqued properly. As a result, rust could form at the threaded portion of the arm, which could eventually cause the arm to separate.
The Fix: Toyota is still researching a fix for the issue. Toyota will notify owners once a remedy has been found. For more information, Toyota customers may call 800-331-4331 while Lexus owners may call 800-255-3987.
Number of Vehicles Potentially Affected: About 760,000 model year 2006-2011 Toyota RAV4 crossovers (early 2011 RAV4s only) and approximately 18,000 2010 Lexus HS 250h hybrid sedans.
