Toyota RAV4 SUVs under investigation due to engine fire complaints

Posted at 12:55 PM, Mar 01, 2021

The U.S. government is investigating complaints of engine compartment fires in nearly two million Toyota RAV4 SUVs.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration began investigating after getting 11 fire complaints involving 2013 through 2018 model years.

The RAV4 is the top-selling vehicle in the U.S. that isn't a pickup truck.

In documents posted Monday, the agency says most of the fires happened while the vehicles are being driven.
