Toyota Recalls Avalons for Bad Seatbelt Fix

By Staff Writer September 20, 2018


Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing is recalling 19,354 2012 Toyota Avalon vehicles.


During a vehicle repair, the seat belt inner buckles may have been replaced with parts that may incorrectly tell the air bag management system that the seat belt is always buckled.
Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will test the seat belt assembly to verify that it is properly detecting being unbuckled, replacing the inner seat belt assembly as necessary, free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin Sept. 17.


 Toyota's number for this recall is J0S.
