Recalled Toyota Vans Feature Incorrectly Installed Seatbelt Height Adjusters
This defective equipment could result in the occupant not being properly restrained during a crash
Unsafe seatbelts have prompted a van recall from Toyota.
The automaker has announced that it is voluntarily recalling certain model year 2016 Toyota Sienna vehicles. In the affected vehicles, incorrect front seatbelt height adjusters may have been installed. During a crash, this incorrect height adjuster may contact the B-pillar and tear or separate.
Failure and detachment of seatbelt height adjuster would result in the occupant not being properly restrained in a crash, increasing their risk of injury.
The company believes that about 230 vehicles are potentially affected.
Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front seat belt height adjusters, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin April 30, 2016.
