2022 Toyota RAV4
Manufacturer: Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing
Number of vehicles affected: 3,533
Report Date: July 21, 2022
Issue: Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (Toyota) is recalling certain 2022 Rav4, Rav4 Hybrid, and Rav4 Prime vehicles. The front passenger seat may have been assembled with interference between internal parts that may cause the Occupant Classification System (OCS) sensor to incorrectly detect the occupant. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 208, “Occupant Crash Protection.” Incorrect detection of an occupant may result in improper air bag deployment during a crash, increasing the risk of injury.
Solution: Dealers will inspect and repair the front passenger seat, as necessary, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed September 2, 2022.
Contact: Owners may contact Toyota’s customer service at 1-800-331-4331. Toyota’s number for this recall is 22TA08.
