Toyota FJ Cruiser (2007 – 2013)

Problem description:

The front seat belts, with their retractors, are mounted in the rear doors. Owing to the inadequate strength of the metal used for the rear doors, repeatedly closing of the doors, forcefully over a long period, may result in cracks. This could cause the seat belt retractors to become loose and, as a result, it is no longer certain that persons in the front seats will be secured in the event of an accident.

The recall affects vehicles built between production years 2007 – 2013.

What the owner should do?

If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a Toyota dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.

If you wish to know more about eventual problems of a specific car (e.g. real mileage, potential traffic accidents damages, odometer rollback, repairs, etc.), then we suggest going to HPI-Check.

Check the vehicle's history

UK car-owners can easily make a pre-check by visiting DVLA website and entering the car registration number; it will also reveal the car’s current MOT status.
