Toyota Rav4 Recall windshield wiper linkage 2009 2010 2011 2012
Corroded linkage could cause wiper to fail
Toyota said on Thursday it will recall almost half a million RAV4 SUVs because of issues related to the windshield wipers. Apparently, the 423,500 affected RAV4s have an issue where water will start to corrode a joint in the linkage near the wiper motor, which then causes the linkage to separate from the assembly. This could stop the wipers from working, which could result in a crash.
