Automaker Toyota has issued a third recall on 337,000 vehicles after the first two recalls failed to address a suspension problem that could cause injuries to vehicle owners, a Los Angeles Times article reported on August 12.
Toyota discovered that the rear suspension assemblies of previous RAV4 and Lexus vehicle models may fail due to rust that could build up as a result of improperly tightened suspension arm threads. If the problem occurs, drivers of the recalled vehicles may lose control of their vehicles, which can lead to accidents. Toyota recalled the vehicles in 2012 due to the unstable rear suspension then recalled them again the following year due to improperly tightened nuts in the rear wheel alignment. Toyota will notify vehicle owners so they can receive the free repair of their suspension arm unit.
