Among the 46 recalls the NHTSA has announced this August comes news of the following:

Logo - Toyota Motor Engineering & ManufacturingToyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (“Toyota”), a Plano Texas establishment, has recalled an estimated 14,215 model year 2019 RAV4 and RAV4 Hybrid vehicles marketed, sold and delivered in the United States.

Due to a damaged electrical connector, the back-up camera may not activate when the recalled vehicle is in reverse. As such, these vehicles fail to comply to Federal Motor Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 111, “Rearview Mirrors.”

According to the NHTSA, if the backup camera system does not activate and the driver does not check his/her surroundings while reversing, there is an increased risk of a crash or personal injury due to pedestrian impact.

Toyota will notify registered owners and dealers will inspect the back-up camera system and replace the audio display unit, if necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin September 23, 2019. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-888-270-9371. Toyota’s designation for this recall is K0N.
