The levers of the lower part of the front suspension may have cracks. Toyota released a review in the United States for 9,502 RAV4 crossovers 2019-2020 due to defective suspension parts.

On May 20, 2020, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) published a review stating that “the front lower suspension arms may have cracks that could break the lever and separate it from the front wheel.” According to the document, “if the vehicle often accelerates and decelerates sharply, which is quite common in these cars, then the aforementioned front lower link arm can eventually separate.”

The identified problem is the result of manufacturing “from a specific sheet of steel material by a particular supplier under certain production conditions.” These materials were manufactured by Nippon Steel Corporation in Japan, and the vehicles in which they were used were produced from September 25 to October 29, 2019. These include 7,330 Toyota RAV4 models and 2,172 RAV4 hybrids.

It is expected that the official start of the recall will be given on July 12, 2020. Toyota will warn owners and replace both front lower suspension arms for free.
