Toyota is voluntarily recalling about 209,000 of its FJ Cruiser sport utility vehicles from the 2007 through 2013 model years because of a problem involving seat belt retractors.

Toyota said on its website that the seat belts for the driver and front passenger are mounted on the rear doors of the FJ Cruiser. Because of the insufficient strength of the rear door panel, cracks could develop over “an extended period of time,” especially if the rear doors are “repeatedly and forcefully” closed.

In the event that cracks appear around the lower seat belt retractor anchor, the retractor could loosen and detach.

The automaker said that it has not received any reports of accidents or injuries due to the problem.

Owners will be notified by mail “soon” and instructed to bring their vehicles to Toyota dealers for a free repair.

In the meantime, owners of 2007 through 2013 Toyota FJ Cruisers with any questions or concerns about the safety recall may contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331 or find more information online at www.toyota.com/recall.

  3. Recalls are no problem as long as they fix it for free. Does any one know where I can get that optional Toyota pop up navigation system? The dealers are still asking $900.
