Toyota Recalls More than 200,000 SUVS for Seatbelt Problems

Over 200,000 Toyota FJ Cruisers are being recalled due seat belt concerns. Model years from 2007 to 2013 are involved in the recall.
The FJ Cruisers can, over time, develop cracks in the door panel around the seat belts due to the door being constantly opened and closed.   If cracks do occur around the door panel there is a possibility that the seatbelt retractor can become completely disconnected. This can significantly increase the risk of injury if a collision does occur.
Toyota has not yet announced what their solution to the issue will be nor have they declared when the recall will begin.  For the complete NHTSA report, click here.
