Toyota Recalls RAV4s and Lexus HS 250h Sedans – Car Pro News

Toyota issued a voluntary recall of 760,000 model-year 2006-11 versions of the RAV4 compact crossover and 18,000 model-year 2010 versions of the Lexus HS 250h hybrid sedan because of problems with the rear suspension nuts.
“Toyota has determined that if the nuts on the rear suspension arm are not tightened following the proper procedure and torque specification during a rear wheel alignment service, excessive play may occur at the threaded portion of the arm, followed by rust formation,” the automaker said in a statement. The rear suspension arm could separate, increasing the risk of an accident.
Toyota says it’s developing a remedy and will begin notifying owners shortly. Dealers will replace the affected parts free of charge.

    Hi Jerry,
    I was looking at a 2010, 2-door coop, Kia Forte, 55K miles, 4 cyl, has everything except a GPS, for $11,900, and still under warranty. My son wanted to get it for me (he’s so kind), and I wasn’t sure it was a good deal. However, after coming home and looking online to compare, I see that it was a good deal for the $$. What are your thoughts on this car, possible future repairs, etc.? Thanks.

      GOOD to hear from you! Those are actually really good cars, I have no fears about them and I agree, the price sounds good.

      I hope it works out super.
