Toyota Recall

Posted: Updated:

MY9TV.COM- Toyota is recalling about 209,000 of its beefy FJ Cruiser SUVs from the 2007 through 2013 model years.

The problem involves the seatbelt retractors for the front seats. In the FJ those retractors are mounted on the "half-doors" that allow rear seat access.

Toyota says that it didn't make those door panels strong enough and that "cracks may develop over an extended period of time if the rear door is repeatedly and forcefully closed."

It says that that if the panel cracks around the anchor for the lower seatbelt retractor, the retractor could come off.

The company says it has no reports of accidents or injuries and that FJ owners will be notified shortly to bring their trucks to a dealer for repairs.
