Nearly 7,067 vehicles are affected by Toyota Highlander recall. The affected automobiles are model-year 2014 Toyota Highlander sport utility vehicles that were manufactured between November 20, 2013, and January 18, 2014.
Toyota officials have said that the aforementioned vehicles are being recalled due to a seat belt problem. The thing is that the third-row middle seat belt assembly may not have been correctly secured to the vehicle’s floor anchorage. This could cause injuries to the passengers in the event of a car crash. According to the automaker, there have been no reports of injuries due to the defect.
Toyota will notify owners about the recall during March. The dealers will inspect the third-row middle seat belt anchors and repair them for free.
