Toyota is recalling about 9,000 model year 2019- 2020 C-HRs, Corollas, and model year 2020 Corolla Hybrids.
The recalled vehicles are equipped with rear seat belt assemblies that have two types of locking mechanisms. One of the locking mechanisms in certain seat belts may not have been assembled correctly, causing an occupant to not be restrained properly in certain crashes -- increasing the risk of injury.
What to do
Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the rear seat belt assemblies and replace any affected seat belt assembly with a new one free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin in early February 2020.
Owners may contact Toyota at (800) 331-4331.
