    Subject: Safety Recall G0F
    2006 - 2012 Model Year RAV4 2012 - 2014 Model Year RAV4 EV Rear Outboard Seatbelts

    On February 17, 2016, Toyota filed a Defect Information Report (DIR) with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) informing the agency of our intent to conduct a voluntary Safety Recall on 2006 - 2012 model year RAV4 vehicles and 2012 - 2014 model year RAV4 EV vehicles.

    Condition:
    The subject vehicles are equipped with lap-shoulder seatbelts in both second-row outboard seats. There is a possibility that, in the event of a very severe frontal crash, the lap belt webbing could contact a portion of the metal seat cushion frame, become cut, and separate. If this occurs, the seat belt may not properly restrain the occupant, which could increase the risk of injury.

    Remedy:

    Toyota dealers will install plastic covers over the metal seat frame at NO CHARGE.

    Covered Vehicles:

    There are approximately 1,123,800 vehicles covered by this Safety Recall.

    Owner Letter Mailing Date:

    Toyota will send a notification by first class mail to owners of covered vehicles starting late June, 2016. Letters will be mailed in quantities consistent with parts availability and dealer repair capacity, and are expected to be completed in early October, 2016.
