Vehicles Affected: Approximately 5,650 model-year 2014 Toyota Camry, Camry Hybrid, Avalon and Avalon Hybrid sedans.
The Problem: Toyota is reporting that the left front suspension lower arm may have an improperly manufactured bolt hole which could affect bolt clamping force. In the event of severe impact to the area, which could be caused by driving on rough pavement, the lower arm could separate from the ball joint, causing a loss of steering control. The automaker said it is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this recall.
The Fix: Dealers will inspect and replace the left front lower suspension arm for free.
What Owners Should Do: Toyota is currently notifying owners via mail. Owners can call Toyota at 800-331-4331 for more information.
