Toyota to recall millions of cars... again.

18 February 2016

Toyota-Logo_4 Toyota are recalling nearly 3 million vehicles. No, this is nothing to do with faulty airbags - this is a brand new problem. There's going to be a total of 2.87 million cars recalled, with 48,616 of them recalled in the UK.

The company have said that the global recall involves the RAV4 SUV model, which was produced between July 2005 and August 2014. The problem here, is that there's a chance that the seatbelts could be damaged by a part in the metal seat frame, should you have a crash.

Over the coming weeks, those who have one of these vehicles will be contacted by Toyota by telephone or the post. There, you'll be asked to make an appointment to get your car sorted out at your nearest Toyota centre.

If you want to speak to the company yourself, then you need to ring 0800 8766750. You can also look online, at Toyota's 'recall checker' service if you want.

The car-maker have said that they've received a couple of reports which saw rear seatbelts separating following crashes, but they can't confirm if these accidents were related to any injuries or fatalities.
