TORRANCE, Calif.–(ENEWSPF)–November 6, 2014. Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc., announced plans to conduct a voluntary safety recall of approximately 5,650 Model Year 2014 Toyota Camry, Camry Hybrid, Avalon and Avalon Hybrid vehicles.
In the involved vehicles, the left front suspension lower arm may have an improperly manufactured bolt
hole where it connects to the ball joint. This could affect bolt clamping force. If this condition exists, in the event of a severe impact to the lower ball joint, which could result from varying road surfaces during normal driving, the lower arm could separate from the ball joint. Separation of the lower arm can cause a loss of steering control.
Toyota is not aware of any crashes, injuries, or fatalities related to this condition.
Owners of the involved vehicles will receive a notification by first class mail. Toyota dealers will replace the left front lower suspension arm with a new one.
