Toyota recalling C-HR cars in US due to loose bolts

Toyota Motor Corp. said Oct. 11 that it is issuing a safety recall of about 700 units of model year 2019 C-HR vehicles distributed in the U.S. due to faulty bearing bolts that can become loose while driving.

The Japanese carmaker said one or more rear axle bearing bolts on certain vehicles may not have been tightened sufficiently during the manufacturing process, which could damage the rear brake components or cause the rear wheels to detach, increasing the risk of a crash.

Owners of affected vehicles will be notified starting early November, the company said. If a bolt is found to be loose or detached, Toyota dealers will replace the cars' rear axle hub bearing assembly and rear axle carrier sub-assembly with new ones for free.

The latest notice follows a wave of recalls affecting more than 2 million Toyota cars sold worldwide. In September, the company also issued a recall of 1.03 million Prius and C-HR cars over fire risks.
