Report Date:
November 25, 2020

Component:
STEERING:COLUMN

Summary:
Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (Toyota) is recalling certain 2020-2021 Toyota Avalon and 2020 Avalon Hybrid, RAV4, and RAV4 Hybrid vehicles.

In the event of a crash, an air bag that does not perform as designed can increase the risk of injury.
