New Recall Notice today
It's an Interim Notice concerning 2006 - early 2011 RAV4s.
"In the Rear Suspension Arm No. 1 Assembly ("arm"), if the nuts for adjusting the rear wheel alignment are not tightened following the proper procedure and torque specification when the vehicle alignment service is performed, rust may form on the arm. If this occurs, threads my wear, causing the arm to seperate, which could result in the loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash."
"If you experience an abnormal noise from the rear of the vehicle or if you previously had a 4-wheel alignment performed......make an appointment to have it inspected and/or replaced..."
The letter goes on to read: You will receive a second owner notification letter when the remedy is available.
2010 RAV4 Limited 4WD V6 Blizzard Pearl
