THE ACCC has issued a recall for custom-fit car seat covers made for the Toyota Hilux and RAV4 and sold under the Sperling and Tradies brand names.
The affected seat covers, sold between January 1, 2015 and April 6, 2018, pose a safety hazard as the side panel of the seat cover may not come apart to allow the airbag to deploy correctly.
• Toyota RAV4 2013+ (CT444)
• Toyota HiLux SR, SR5 Dual Cab Ute 2015+ (CT460)
• Toyota HiLux 4dr Workmate Extra Cab Ute 2015+ (CT463)

4x4 history: 50 years of the Hilux
