Toyota Motor North America will soon issue a voluntary recall on two very different vehicles for the same issue. The problem surrounds the vehicle’s rear suspension and the alignment adjusting nuts. When serviced for procedures such as new tires or repair, the nut is highly susceptible to being improperly tightened. If this occurs, the rear tie rod end may begin to move and or build up rust leading to damage or overall failure. A suddenly breaking tie rod would cause the a Lexus HS250h or Toyota RAV4 to lose major control over its direction.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), approximately 778,000 vehicles are to be recalled. The vehicles at risk were manufactured from October 2005 through September 2010. Just 2010 model year Lexus HS250h vehicles are affected while 2006 through 2011 model year RAV4 crossovers are being investigated. With so many things to look into, Toyota has yet to set an official notification date as well as a cemented remedy. Once that is confirmed, the details will be released to the public.
