BMW will recall Toyota Supra sports cars in the USA

Testimonials and service campaigns are quite common practice in the automotive industry, although, of course, in the vast majority of cases, the title maker announces service shares. This time, at first glance, something went wrong: Toyota was concerned about the safety of Toyota sports cars in Munich.

However, in reality there is nothing incomprehensible in the situation. The American National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and BMW have announced that seven Toyota Coupe coupes may have problems with seat belts. It is alleged that the fastening of the belt loop on these sports cars could have been incorrectly welded, which in the event of an accident would increase the risk of injury.

According to Motor1, only three of these seven coupes have already been handed over to customers, and the invitation to visit the dealership is addressed mainly to them. If the problem with the fastening of the seat belt is confirmed, they will not repair the sports car: the whole car will be replaced.

As for the reason that the recall of the three-doors was announced not by Toyota itself, but by their Bavarian colleagues, the company said in a letter to the American editorial office of Motor1 that the situation was simply explained. The reason is that the Supra and BMW cars are assembled at the same Magna Steyr plant in Austrian Graz.
