Millions of Toyota vehicles with seatbelts that may fail recalled

According to a February 18 report from USA Today, over 1.1 million Toyota vehicles in the U.S. are part of the estimated 2.9 million vehicles that are being recalled worldwide due to seatbelts that may fail in the event of an accident.

According to reports, the seatbelts on both second-row window seats of previous RAV 4 vehicles may tear off in a front impact accident. Passengers seating in the second-row window seats may suffer serious injuries in such accidents if the seatbelts are torn. According to Toyota, the problem may arise if the seatbelts make contact with the metal frame of the seat cushions, causing the belts to rip/tear. The recall also affects previous electric models of RAV 4 vehicles. Toyota will address the problem by covering the metal frames of the seats with plastic for free.

Auto defects, unfortunately, can be hard to prove in accidents.
