Approximately 14,000 model-year 2019 Toyota RAV4 and RAV4 Hybrid SUVs are being recalled due to a faulty electrical connection in the audio display unit. Video from the rearview camera can fail to display when the vehicle is in Reverse, increasing the risk of a crash.
Toyota will begin notifying owners on Sept. 23. Owners can call the automaker at 888-270-9371 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To fix the problem, dealers will inspect the backup camera system and replace the audio display unit, if necessary.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
