What's the Problem?
This recall affects 2019-2020 Toyota C-HR and 2020 Toyota Corolla and Toyota Corolla Hybrid vehicles equipped with rear seat belt assemblies with a dual-mode locking mechanism, according to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
The seat belt webbing sensor locking mechanism on the recalled Toyotas may not lock as intended. In the event of a crash involving multiple impacts, the seat belt may not properly restrain the occupant, increasing the risk of injury.
Toyota is notifying all registered owners, and dealers will fix the problem free of charge. This recall is expected to begin on Feb. 3, 2020.
