TORONTO, Ontario, November 4, 2014 – Toyota Canada Inc., announced plans to
conduct a voluntary safety recall of approximately 163 Model Year 2014 Toyota Camry and Camry Hybrid vehicles.
In the involved vehicles, the left front suspension lower arm may have an improperly manufactured bolt hole where it connects to the ball joint. This could affect bolt clamping force. If this condition exists, in the event of a severe impact to the lower ball joint, which could result from varying road surfaces during normal driving, the lower arm could separate from the ball joint. Separation of the lower arm can cause a loss of steering control. Toyota is not aware of any crashes, injuries, or fatalities related to this condition.
Owners of the involved vehicles will receive a notification by mail. Toyota dealerships will replace the left front lower suspension arm with a new one.
Information is available to customers by calling the Toyota Customer Interaction Centre at 1-888-TOYOTA-8 (1-888-869-6828)
