2005 Toyota FJ Cruiser Toyota will conduct a safety recall involving approximately 209,000 FJ Cruiser vehicles.

Toyota has announced a safety recall for 209,000 FJ Cruiser vehicles. According to the Japanese automaker, the seatbelt retractors for the driver and front passenger seat belts are mounted in the rear doors (access doors) for 2007 through 2013 model year FJ cruisers.

Furthermore, cracks may develop over an extended period of time if the rear door is repeatedly and forcefully closed, as a result of insufficient strength of the rear-door panel. If cracks occur in the panel around the lower seatbelt retractor anchor, the seatbelt retractor may become detached, Toyota said in a statement.

Owners of affected vehicles will receive an owner notification letter via first-class mail in the near future. Any authorized Toyota dealer will perform this recall at no charge to the vehicle owner, Toyota said.

No accidents or injuries have been reported for this condition, as of yet.
