Toyota Camry 2019 recalled: More than 1000 new sedans have possible seatbelt issue

Toyota Australia has been forced to recall 1044 Camry sedans over potentially faulty seatbelts.

Affecting MY19 examples sold between September 11 and December 11 this year, a manufacturing defect possibly causes one of the lock mechanisms in the seatbelts from locking as designed.

In the event of an accident, if the seatbelts don’t function properly, occupants might not be correctly restrained, therefore increasing the risk of injury and/or death.

The same potential issue also involves 14 Coaster minibuses of MY19 and MY20 varieties.

Impacted owners will be contacted in writing by Toyota Australia with instructions to make an appointment at their preferred dealership for free-of-charge repairs.

Those looking for extra information can contact the Toyota Recall Assist Helpline on 1800 987 366 during business hours. Alternatively, they can directly contact their preferred dealership.
