Toyota Recalling 10,000 2019, 2020 RAV4s Over Faulty Suspension Parts

Toyota is recalling certain 2019 and 2020 model year RAV4 and RAV4 hybrid SUVs due to the potential presence of defective suspension components. A total of 9,502 vehicles may have cracked lower front suspension parts, which could have adverse consequences.

Update: We contacted Toyota Canada to see how many if any models under the recall are in Canada. There's good news for Canadian RAV4 owners: no vehicles in Canada fall under the current recall.

It’s become clear that the new-generation RAV4 is definitely not getting off to a flying start. While the SUV remains a favourite with consumers, last year it failed an obstacle avoidance test conducted by a Scandinavian media outlet. The problem was subsequently resolved, but now comes this new recall campaign.

The NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) made the recall official on May 20. The recall states that "the front lower suspension arms may have cracks, which may result in the suspension arm separating from the front wheel assembly." In addition, the document states that "if a vehicle is driven frequently with rapid acceleration and deceleration over its lifetime, an involved front lower suspension arm can eventually separate".

The problem identified with the parts is the result of their being built from a batch of weaker steel material provided by a supplier, which manufactured it under “certain production conditions”. The supplier is identified as the Nippon Steel Corporation, located in Japan. The models with these weakened materials were manufactured between September 25 and October 29 of 2019. In total, the recall specifically identified 7,330 RAV4 and 2,172 RAV4 hybrid models.

The recall is expected to officially begin on July 12, 2020. Toyota will alert owners and replace the two lower front suspension arms at no charge. This notice, by the way, comes less than a year after RAV4 received the highest possible safety rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

We have contacted Toyota Canada to find out how many models are or will be affected north of the border. We will update this information as it becomes available.

  • Toyota has issued a recall for 9502 of its 2019 and 2020 RAV4s and RAV4 hybrids in the U.S. due to a faulty front lower suspension arm that could separate from the wheel assembly and potentially cause a crash.
  • The issue was caused by improper conditions at the steel supplier's plant, Toyota said in its defect report.
  • Owners will be notified by the recall starting July 19; Toyota will replace the part on affected RAV4s.

Toyota has issued a recall for a small number of 2019 and 2020 RAV4s and RAV4 hybrids in the U.S. due to a faulty front lower suspension arm that can crack and separate from the front wheel, increasing the risk of a crash. The recall covers 9502 of the crossovers, all of which were built in September or October 2019.

The issue in the suspension arm was caused by improper conditions at the steel supplier, Toyota said, which led to cracks forming on the surface of the steel. According to the defect information report, when the affected vehicles are driven frequently with aggressive acceleration and deceleration, the cracks could spread and lead to the suspension arm separating from the wheel assembly. Toyota says that it is unaware of this occurring in any of the recalled vehicles.

Owners will be notified of the recall by mail beginning on July 19. Dealers have already been notified and will replace the parts on affected vehicles, but in the meantime, owners of 2019 or 2020 RAV4 and RAV4 hybrid models can visit the NHTSA website to see if their vehicles are included and to get more information.

Additionally, Toyota put a stop-sale order on the models, meaning dealers can't sell any of the affected vehicles still on their lots until they replace the affected suspension arms.

Recall toyota 2019 rav4

  • Toyota is recalling 44,000 vehicles from the 2019 and 2020 model years with a 2.5-liter inline-four engine.
  • The recall involves the possibility that cracks could form in the engine, leading to coolant or oil leaks and stalling, overheating, or engine fires.
  • Toyota estimates only about 250 vehicles will have the problem. Dealers will check vehicles on the recall list to see if they are affected, and if so will replace the engine.

Toyota is recalling some of its most popular vehicles due to the potential of a crack forming in the engine, a result of a manufacturing error. Coolant or oil could leak from the crack, leading to the engine stalling, overheating, or possibly catching fire, Toyota said.

The recall covers models with Toyota's 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and include the 2020 Camry, Camry hybrid, Avalon hybrid, 2019 and 2020 RAV4 and RAV4 hybrid, and the 2020 Lexus ES300H. In total, 44,191 vehicles are covered by the recall, the majority of which (36,920) are 2019 and 2020 RAV4 crossovers. All the vehicles were built between September and December 2019. The issue came about when a water flow meter that regulates the casting of engines failed, leading to some engines not cooling properly.

If the issue does occur, it can lead to engine noise, engine smoke, warning lights, and/or engine overheating. In a statement published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Toyota said it estimates only about 250 vehicles, or 0.5 percent, of the vehicles being recalled actually have faulty engines.

Once owners bring their vehicles into a dealer, the dealer will check the serial number on the engine to determine whether the engine is part of the affected batch. For those engines that are affected, dealers will replace the engine, including the engine block. Owners will be notified by early April and in the meantime can check the NHTSA recall site to see if their vehicle is involved.
