Toyota Highlander SUV Recalled for Seat Belt Problem

Toyota Highlander SUV

Toyota is recalling about 90,000 Highlander SUV’s in the U.S. There is a potential problem with the seat belt in a third-row seat. The seat belt might not properly secure a rear-facing child seat.

Toyota spokesman Bill Kwong said Friday the company had issued a stop sale of the 2008 Highlander SUV and hybrid version with third-row seats to retrofit changes to the seat belt.

No injuries or complaints have resulted because of the seat belts.

The Highlanders being recalled were built between May, 2007 and March, 2008. Toyota will notify owners of the recall in June, and dealers will install a newly-designed seat belt component.
