TORRANCE, Calif., March 15, 2013 – Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc. (TMS), will conduct a safety recall involving approximately 209,000 FJ Cruiser vehicles.

If cracks occur in the panel around the lower seatbelt retractor anchor, the seatbelt retractor may become detached.
No accidents or injuries have been reported for this condition.
Owners of vehicles covered by this safety recalls will receive an owner notification letter via first class mail starting in the near future. Any authorized Toyota dealer will perform this recall at no charge to the vehicle owner.
