Toyota recalls 2019 C-HR SUV because the wheels might fall off



https://www.cnet.com/roadshow/news/t...ll-axle-bolts/

Toyota has issued a recall for the 2019 C-HR subcompact SUV. Thankfully, the recall is rather small in scope, limited to approximately 700 vehicles, although Toyota did not say if the recalled vehicles share anything in common like build dates. So far this year, Toyota has sold about 37,930 C-HRs in the US, and it sold an additional 25,755 in 2017.

The recall stems from axle bearing bolts, which keep underbody components together. Apparently, some of these bolts on the affected vehicles might not have been tightened to spec. If they become loose or fall off during vehicle operation, rear brake components might become damaged, and there's a chance the rear wheels might detach. This, obviously, increases the risk of a crash, hence the recall.

In order to remedy the issue, Toyota's technicians will inspect the bolts in question after vehicles return to the dealership. If any of the bolts are loose or detached, Toyota will replace the rear axle hub bearing assembly and the rear axle carrier sub-assembly with new parts. Owners should start receiving recall notifications via first-class mail in early November.

I was just about to post up this recall this morning. Auto publications certainly do know how to make a catchy headline. With only 700 units being recalled, it seems like the issue will only affect a handful of owners. Its still not great for Toyota that we are seeing yet another recall in such a short period of time.
