2019 Toyota C-HR

Toyota is conducting a safety recall involving certain 2019 C-HR vehicles in the U.S. Approximately 700 vehicles are involved in this recall.

There is a possibility that one or more rear axle bearing bolts on some vehicles may not have been tightened sufficiently during the manufacturing process. If one or more bolts become loose or detach during vehicle operation, they could damage the rear brake components or could cause the rear wheels to detach, resulting in reduced brake performance or a potential loss of vehicle stability. This could increase the risk of a crash.

For all involved vehicles, Toyota dealers will check the rear axle hub bearing bolts. If a bolt is found to be loose or detached, the dealer will replace the rear axle hub bearing assembly and rear axle carrier sub-assembly with new ones at no cost to customers. Owners of all involved vehicles will receive notification starting in early November. For any additional questions, call Toyota at 1.800.331.4331.
