The battery may move when the vehicle is driven with forceful turns

Toyota is recalling 1.854 million model year 2013-2018 RAV4s.

If a small-top battery is used for replacement and the hold-down clamp is not tightened correctly, the battery could move when the vehicle is driven with forceful turns.

Such movement could cause the positive battery terminal to contact the hold-down clamp and short circuit, increasing the risk of a fire.

What to do

Toyota is currently preparing the remedy and expects to notify owners by late December 2023.
