Car and Driver: Toyota Recalling 1.1 Million RAV4 Models for Seatbelts

Recommended Posts



Toyota is recalling more than 1.1 million RAV4 models in the U.S. for seatbelts that can snap in a crash, the company said.



On all 2006–2012 RAV4 and 2012–2014 RAV4 EV models, the rear-seat lap belts at both outboard positions may rub against part of the metal seat-cushion frame during a crash and rip, thus negating, well, the point of a seatbelt. Toyota did not report any injuries related to the issue. Filings were not available from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.


Dealers will coat part of the seat frame in a resin to keep the sharp edges from cutting the belts. A repair schedule was not provided.


In October, Toyota recalled the RAV4 twice, once for faulty windshield-wiper joints on 2009–2012 and 2012–2014 EV models, and a second time for window-switch fires that included 2006–2011 models.
