Toyota is recalling 18,000 versions of the 2019 RAV4 and RAV4 Hybrid SUVs because the backup camera may not work.
Toyota says that there is a damaged connector in the audio display that is causing the camera system to not work. Drivers who rely on this camera may not be able to see what’s behind them when backing up.
The camera, if not fixed, would violate safety regulations in both the U.S. and Canada. The U.S. owners of these models will be sent a letter in October about the recall. To see if your vehicle is affected, visit www.toyota.com/recall.
Toyota will replace the audio display for free for all 2019 RAV4 and RAV4 Hybrids.
