Remedy to include newly designed hub bolts with washers, as well as improved wheels
PLANO, Texas (October 6, 2022) – Today, Toyota provided an update on a previously announced safety recall involving certain 2023 model year bZ4X vehicles in the U.S. Approximately 260 vehicles are involved in this recall.
The hub bolts attaching the wheels of the subject vehicles can loosen to the point where the wheel can detach from the vehicle. If a wheel detaches from the vehicle while driving, it could result in a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash. No one should drive these vehicles until the remedy is performed.
For all subject vehicles in the U.S., the hub bolts will be replaced with newly designed hub bolts with washers and the wheels will be replaced with improved ones. The remedy will be provided by Toyota dealers at no cost to the customer.
Remedy parts are being prepared, and Toyota’s goal is to begin offering the remedy for customer vehicles by November 2022.
