2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser Recalled To Fix Steering Problem


TORRANCE, California Toyota Motor Sales U.S.A. is recalling approximately 120 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser SUVs to fix a steering problem, the automaker said on Thursday.

"The steering system contains an intermediate shaft, which connects the steering wheel to the steering gear box," Toyota said in a statement. "In the involved vehicles, the intermediate shaft could have received an inadequate weld.

"Under some circumstances, the weld could separate, resulting in the loss of steering control and increasing the risk of a crash."

Toyota is not aware of any crashes, injuries or fatalities linked to the recall.

Toyota dealers will replace the intermediate shaft. A date has not been specified for the recall. Owners can contact Toyota customer service at 1-800-331-4331.

No information about the recall has been posted on the Web site of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which oversees vehicle safety in the U.S.

Edmunds says: Owners will have to wait for their official recall notice before scheduling a service appointment. But if you have an immediate concern, it's best to contact your dealer.
