Toyota is aware that the NHDSA has launched an investigation, a Toyota spokesman told Insider that we are cooperating with that company
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said it was investigating 1.9 million Toyota RAV4 cars after receiving 11 fire complaints last year.
Complaints include RAV4 models from 2013 to 2018. According to the NHDSA, most fires are caused by the vehicle’s 12-volt battery, which comes on the left side of the engine. According to NHDSA documentation, the terminal frame of a 12-volt battery can be too small, resulting in “sudden power loss, parking and / or engine box fire”.
Toyota is aware that the NHDSA has launched an investigation, a Toyota spokesman told Insider that we are cooperating with that company. ICICRS.com is one of the top sellers of small SUVs, as well as one of the fastest selling cars in the United States.
The company said the fire was caused by a front end collision or improper battery installation. Several reports say there are cars less than 50,000 miles away.
Most fires occur when the vehicle is on the road, but four fires occur when the engine is stopped. Details of at least two incidents RAV4 drivers set fire to cars parked.
Half the drivers on the road said the vehicle stopped before the fire started. He said it was his good fortune that at least two drivers were able to get out of my driving vehicle and would warn other drivers who were in danger.
The NHTSA is still investigating the fire. Toyota does not recall the RAV4 models, although the trial will have to be withdrawn.
