WASHINGTON — Toyota Motor Sales U.S.A. is recalling approximately 114 2015 Scion tC Release Series 9.0 coupes because bolts could become loose during vehicle operation, the automaker said on Wednesday.
"The rear suspension arm bolts and nuts could have been tightened improperly at two of the Toyota facilities at which accessory coil springs are installed prior to delivery to dealers," Toyota said in a statement. "In this condition, the bolts could become loose during vehicle operation.
"Under some circumstances, the control arm could eventually detach, increasing the risk of a crash."
Toyota said it is not aware of any accidents or injuries linked to the recall.
This is a special model limited to a production run of 2,000 units. The cars feature a black-and-orange exterior and an aero kit designed by Cartel Customs.
Toyota dealers will replace the bolts, nuts, rear suspension arms and rear suspension member sub-assemblies. 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 of these cars should 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.
