I got a letter from Toyota this week about this issue. It said that the battery should be group 35 size. I did the inspection and found I have a size 24F. The brackets and everything seemed tight. They said if you have the wrong size they recommend replacing it, but they’re only offering a $32 discount on the price of a battery. Anyone have more insight on this to know if it’s ok to keep using the 24F?Found when I took my Rav4 in for routine mantenance yesterday that there was a recall or "Consumer Advisory" for the battery issue.
Here is the description:
Consumer Advisory 21TG01, Certain 2013-2018 Model Year RAV4, 12-Volt battery size and installation inspection.
* Fortunately mine was correct size and was secured properly (not sure what the details/specs of the inspection are *
There is a video that even mentions this, but it is a short video (no description either about what they check)
