TORRANCE, California — Toyota is recalling approximately 209,000 2007-'13 Toyota FJ Cruisers because the front seatbelt retractors may become detached, according to the automaker.

"The seatbelt retractors for the driver and front passenger seatbelts are mounted in the rear doors (access doors) of the vehicle," said Toyota in a statement. "Due to insufficient strength of the rear door panels, cracks may develop over an extended period of time if the rear door is repeatedly and forcefully closed. If cracks occur in the panel around the lower seatbelt retractor anchor, the seatbelt retractor may become detached."

No accidents or injuries have been linked to the recall, Toyota said. No information about the recall has been posted on the Web site of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which oversees vehicle recalls in the U.S.

The recall is expected to begin soon, but Toyota has not announced a specific date. Owners can contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.

Edmunds says: Toyota says the recall will begin "in the near future," so if you own a 2007-'13 Toyota FJ Cruiser, it's best to stay in touch with your dealer.
