The vehicles may lose electric power steering assist
Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing is recalling 46 model year 2019-2020 RAV4s and model year 2020 RAV4 Hybrids with electric power steering (EPS).
Water may enter through the steering gear box cover and cause a loss of electric power steering assist.
A loss of power steering assist could increase steering effort at low vehicle speeds, increasing the risk of a crash.
Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will replace the power steering gear box free of charge.
