Recall Notice

LemonFree has found some important recall information regarding 2012 Toyota RAV4 vehicles

2012 Toyota RAV4 (2/19/2016)  

Campaign Number: 16V096000

Component Name: SEAT BELTS:REAR

Manufacturer: Toyota Motor Corporation

Description: Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (Toyota) is recalling certain model year 2006-2012 RAV4 vehicles manufactured July 28, 2005, to December 19, 2012, and 2012-2014 RAV4 EV vehicles manufactured July 24, 2012, to August 29, 2014. In the event of a frontal collision, the rear seat belts for the outboard seats may be cut by the seat cushion frame.

Defect: A cut seat belt may not properly restrain the seat occupant, increasing their risk of injury in a crash.

Corrective Action: Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will install a protector over both rear seat cushion frames, free of charge. Parts for the remedy are not currently available. Owners were sent interim notification letters on March 16, 2016. A second notice will be mailed when parts are available. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-800-331-4331. Toyota's number for this recall is G0F.

2012 Toyota RAV4 (9/18/2015)  

Campaign Number: 15V577000

Component Name: VISIBILITY/WIPER

Manufacturer: Toyota Motor Corporation

Description: Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (Toyota) is recalling certain model year 2009-2012 RAV4 vehicles manufactured October 27, 2008, to December 19, 2012 and 2012-2014 RAV4 EV vehicles manufactured July 24, 2012, to August 29, 2014. In the affected vehicles, water may drip onto the joint that connects the wiper linkage to the wiper motor.

Defect: Over time, the dripping water may cause corrosion and wear at the joint, potentially resulting in the separation of the wiper linkage. Once this occurs, the wipers would not function, reducing driver visibility and increasing the risk of a crash.

Corrective Action: Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will replace the water diverter channel. In addition, a new wiper linkage with a wiper motor crank arm will be installed. The wiper linkage will have a protective cover over the wiper linkage joint to minimize water splash and a retainer ring to prevent the wiper arm from separating from the wiper motor. Owners were notified of an interim repair on March 21, 2016. Owners will receive a second notice when the final remedy repair become available. Owners may contact Toyota's customer service number at 1-800-331-4331.

2012 Toyota RAV4 (2/12/2014)  

Campaign Number: 14V054000

Component Name: SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC:ANTILOCK:CONTROL UNIT/MODULE

Manufacturer: Toyota Motor Corporation

Description: Toyota is recalling certain model year 2012 and 2013 Toyota Tacoma and Lexus RX350 vehicles and certain model year 2012 Toyota Rav4 vehicles.

An electrical component within the actuator may experience an increased resistance resulting in the illumination of various warning lights, including those for the Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) system, Antilock Brake System (ABS), and Traction Control system.

Defect: If this occurs, these systems could become inoperative, reducing the directional control assistance, increasing the risk of a crash.

Corrective Action: Toyota will notify owners, and Toyota and Lexus dealers will update the software for the Skid Control electronic control unit, free of charge. The recall began on March 28, 2014. Owners may contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.
