Toyota will be asking the owners of certain 2006-2011 Toyota RAV4 and 2010 Lexus HS 250 Hybrid vehicles to return to their dealership to repair a problem affecting the rear suspension system. During a rear wheel alignment, improperly tightened alignment nuts could result in damage to the threaded portion of the rear suspension arm assembly. If the problem is not corrected, the damage could result in separation of the arm and an abrupt change in vehicle alignment.

Dealers will replace both rear suspension arms and encased them in an epoxy to prevent future adjustment and potential loosening of the nut. Owners wanting more information about the problem are asked to contact Toyota customer service at 1-800-331-4331. The numbers for this recall are G0V for Toyota and GLK for Lexus. The NHTSA campaign number is 16V-596. (Note: This recall supersedes recall 13V-383, in which some vehicles were only inspected, sealed, and did not have both arms replaced. Those vehicles need to have both arms replaced as part of this recall remedy.)
