Vehicles Affected: Approximately 700 model-year 2019 Toyota C-HR SUVs
The Problem: 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, which 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 and increasing the risk of a crash.
The Fix: Dealers will check the rear axle hub bearing bolts and, if a bolt is found to be loose or detached, replace the rear axle hub bearing assembly and rear axle carrier sub-assembly with new ones for free.
What Owners Should Do: Toyota will begin notifying owners in early November. Owners can call the automaker at 800-331-4331, 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.
