Toyota Rav4 Recall, Lexus HS250h Recall, Tire Rod Failure Danger

Toyota RAV4 Recalled for Crash Danger
Report Receipt Date: AUG 28, 2013 
NHTSA Campaign Number: 13V383000 
Component(s): SUSPENSION 
Potential Number of Units Affected: 780,584 



SUMMARY:
Toyota is recalling certain model year 2006 through 2011 RAV4 and 2010 Lexus HS250h passenger vehicles manufactured from October 2005 through September 2010. If the nuts for adjusting the rear wheel alignment are improperly tightened during service, the rear suspension arm (rear tire rod) may develop unwanted movement and rust leading to thread damage and eventual failure. Failure of the rear tire rod will cause an abrupt change in the vehicle's alignment.
CONSEQUENCE:
Failure of the rear tie rod could cause a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash.
