Vehicles Affected: Approximately 9,000 model-year 2019-20 Toyota C-HR SUVs and model-year 2020 Toyota Corolla and Corolla Hybrid sedans equipped with rear seat belt assemblies that have two types of locking mechanisms
The Problem: One of the locking mechanisms may not have been assembled correctly, which could cause a passenger to not be restrained properly in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury.
The Fix: Dealers will inspect the rear seat belt assemblies and replace any affected assembly with a new one for free.
What Owners Should Do: Toyota will begin notifying owners in early February 2020. Owners can call Toyota at 888-270-9371, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
