Toyota Highlander Recall: Second Row Seat Assembly

When it rains, it pours… According to the NHTSA, another safety recall has been issued for the 2014 Toyota Highlander. This time around, the recall is related to the second row seat assembly on the right (passenger) side.

Here’s the scoop from the NHTSA:

Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (Toyota) is recalling certain model year 2014 Highlander vehicles manufactured April 23, 2014, through April 29, 2014. The affected vehicles may have not been manufactured properly causing the seat not to fully lock into the inboard seat track in the forward first, second and third adjusting positions. Thus, these vehicles do not conform to the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) 207 “Seating Systems.”

This problem affects a scant 231 vehicles, so chances are that you’re in the clear. But if your vehicle was assembled in the affected time window, you should definitely check it out.

As always, you can check for recalls by entering your VIN at or by creating an account on the Toyota Owners website.
