337K Toyota vehicles with suspension issues recalled in the US

Japanese automaker Toyota recently issued a recall to 337,000 vehicles in the U.S. in response to a suspension issue that may cause injuries to vehicle occupants, an August 12 article of Los Angeles Times reported.

According to reports, the rear suspension unit of 2006-2011 Toyota RAV4 models and 2010 Lexus HS250h vehicles may fail during operation. Owners of the affected Toyota vehicles are at high risk of losing control of their vehicles when the rear suspension unit malfunctions. Toyota found that rust may build up on the threads of the rear suspension arm if the nuts of the rear wheel alignment are improperly tightened. Toyota initially addressed the problem in 2012 because the rear suspension was loose. In 2013, Toyota recalled the vehicles due to a rear wheel alignment issue. Owners of affected vehicles will receive a notification and the free repair of their vehicles.
