Slightly more than 90,000 Toyota
Highlanders are being recalled
for a seatbelt problem in the third row. The recalled crossovers
are all 2008 models built between May of 2007 and March of this year. The stock belts could prevent secure mounting of a rear-facing child seat in the third row, and dealers
will install a redesigned part on affected Highlanders. The problem with the third row belts hasn't spawned any complaints or injuries, and owners will be notified starting in June. Still, Toyota has put the brakes on Highlander
sales until current stock is retrofitted and assembly lines are resupplied with the new part.
