Rav4 owners will be asked to return their vehicle to a Toyota dealership to have a suspension component checked.
The recall, issued today by Toyota, involves around 65,000 Rav4 vehicles sold in Australia between October 2005 and November 2010.
The recall was issued over concerns a rear suspension nut could be insufficiently tightened during maintenance and that could lead to the potential failure of a rear suspension arm.
There have been no reported incidents or accidents caused by the fault on Rav4 vehicles in Australia however it is another set-back for the nations top selling brand.
In recent years tens of thousands of Toyota vehicles across a number of different models have been recalled to fix varying defects.
Toyota Australia spokesman Beck Angel says the latest move is a precaution and Rav4 owners will be contacted directly.
