Thousands of 2014 Toyota SUVs with seat belt defect recalled
Automaker giant Toyota is recalling at least 7,067 2014 Highlander Sports Utility Vehicles (SUV) due to a seat belt that may possibly detach from the floor, the Los Angeles Times reported on March 10.
The recall affects 2014 Toyota Highlander Crossover SUVs that have a seat belt located in the third row middle seat that may suddenly detach. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said the seat belt issue in the SUVs may cause serious injuries to its occupants during accidents. However, Toyota has stated that they have not received any reports of injuries involving the affected SUVs yet.
Toyota dealers will fix the problem this month by reinforcing the connection of the seat belt to the SUV’s floor for free.
