Toyota RAV4 (2001 – 2005)

Published on 29. 11. 2022

Problem description:

The seat-belt retractors may not function properly, where the force limiter may allow the seat belt to extend more than intended. This, in turn, may increase the amount of forward motion of the occupant, increasing the risk of injury in the event of an accident.

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.
