Tesla recalls 120,000 vehicles over potentially faulty doors that could open in a crash
In December 2019, the US division of Japanese car giant Toyota announced that it was recalling a total of 112,500 vehicles in order to fix a potentially dangerous defect in the doors of some models. The recalled models include the popular Camry and RAV4, both of which are produced in Japan and exported to the United States.
The recall affects models which were manufactured between March 2006 and September 2007. Toyota’s investigation showed that the driver and front passenger doors could open in the case of a crash. If this were to happen, it could lead to a higher risk of injury for occupants.
The company is urging all owners of the recalled vehicles to take their cars to the nearest dealer immediately in order to have the doors inspected and repaired if necessary. Toyota said that it had not received any complaints or reports of incidents related to the defect yet. However, the company is taking proactive action in order to prevent any potential problems.
