18 February 2016 / Recalls
Toyota New Zealand has announced a recall for 9436 RAV4 models manufactured between 2005 and 2014 for a possible safety fault involving the shape of the rear seat cushion frame.
In the event of a high-speed collision there is a possibility that the lap belt could contact the seat cushion frame. If this occurs, the seat belt webbing may be compromised and not properly restrain the occupant.
Though there have been no reported incidents of this fault occurring in New Zealand, Toyota will be participating in the global recall which involves 2,696,300 vehicles worldwide.
Owners of the vehicles, which are traceable through registration data, will be contacted by Toyota New Zealand.
The remedy will take approximately 30 to 60 minutes and performed at no cost to the vehicle owners at their nearest Toyota dealership.
Toyota New Zealand is still investigating how many second hand imported vehicles might be affected by the recall.
