Toyota Motor Corp. will recall more than 90,000 Highlander sport utility vehicles in the U.S. since a safety regulator noticed the seatbelts fail to secure child seats.
The cars will be fixed so that certain rear-facing child seats can be properly secured in a third-row seat providing proper protection to a child in case of an accident, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported on Friday.
The problem was detected by NHTSA while in a test the seat belt failed to lock the child device and the regulator observed it could result in shifting even in normal driving. However the company reported no complaints or injuries have been reported.
Toyota will notify the customers about the recall in early June and will fix the problem without extra charge.
