Revocation campaign will affect more than 82,000 crossovers and SUVs of popular Japanese brands

Rosstandart announced the recall of 82,641 Toyota and Lexus vehicles sold in Russia from December 2015 to the present. The reason for the recall is a possible defective seal. The review will cover the following Toyota models: Highlander, Land Cruiser Prado, RAV 4 and Lexus – RX 200T, RX350, RX 450H.

The Office reports that due to the nature of the seal that holds the heater inside the windshield washer nozzle, there is the possibility of a gap between the seal and the nozzle body, which may lead to cracks in the heater over time. In the event of such a situation, water with anti-icing reagents can penetrate the heating element and lead to its short circuit and overheating, and in the worst case, to fire.
