Toyota Motor Corp. is recalling about 337,000 vehicles to fix a potential suspension problem linked to repairs made during a previous recall. Toyota said it will have to remedy problems with 337,000 Toyota RAV4 from model years 2006-2011 and Lexus HS 250h vehicles from model year 2010 to have their suspension arm assemblies replaced. The company said that if the nuts used in the earlier recall for adjusting the rear wheel alignment weren’t properly tightened when an alignment was performed, rust could form on the suspension arm threads. “If this occurs, and if the condition is not identified and remedied during servicing or repair under the existing remedy procedure, the threads can wear over time, causing the arm to separate, which could result in a loss of vehicle control,” Toyota said in its announcement.
