Problem Summary:

TOYOTA IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2006 THROUGH 2011 RAV4 AND 2010 LEXUS HS250H PASSENGER VEHICLES MANUFACTURED FROM OCTOBER 2005 THROUGH SEPTEMBER 2010. IF THE NUTS FOR ADJUSTING THE REAR WHEEL ALIGNMENT ARE IMPROPERLY TIGHTENED DURING SERVICE, THE REAR SUSPENSION ARM (REAR TIRE ROD) MAY DEVELOP UNWANTED MOVEMENT AND RUST LEADING TO THREAD DAMAGE AND EVENTUAL FAILURE.

Corrective Action:

TOYOTA WILL NOTIFY OWNERS, AND DEALERS WILL INSPECT THE TIE RODS AND REPLACE ANY THAT HAVE RUST OR CORROSION ON THE ALIGNMENT ADJUSTMENT THREADS. ALL OF THE REAR TIE RODS WILL THEN BE ENCASED IN AN EPOXY TO PREVENT FUTURE ENVIRONMENTAL DAMAGE.

ALL OWNERS WILL RECEIVE NOTIFICATION OF THE RECALL, WITH MOST RECEIVING SECOND NOTIFICATIONS WHEN PARTS ARE AVAILABLE IN THEIR AREA. IMPORTANT: THIS RECALL SUPERSEDES TOYOTA AND LEXUS RECALL 12V-373.
