Toyota Recalls 2.9 Million SUV's

Posted: Updated:

TOKYO - Toyota is recalling nearly 3 million RAV4 sport utility vehicles.

Toyota says the rear seat belts could be severed in a crash, leaving passengers unprotected. The fault is suspected in two separate crashes that resulted in one death in Canada. The recall is a precaution.

The vehicles were produced between 2005 and 2014 in all markets except Japan, where the recall affects models as recent as 2016.

The recall covers RAV4 SUVS from the 2005 through 2014 model years, the RAV4 electric vehicle from 2012 through 2014, sold in North America.
