Toyota offers to take over bZ4X due to crash wheel recall

Car Blog - Toyota and Subaru have yet to find a solution to the problem of wheels that can suddenly pop out on the electric bZ4X and Solterra.
Toyota has yet to find a solution to the sudden wheel popping problem on the electric bZ4X. Keep in mind that last June, the manufacturer stopped selling this model due to the effective recall. This also affected the marketing of its mechanical brother Subaru Solterra, to the point of canceling its Canadian launch. We now know that in the United States, Toyota is offering to buy back some units that were sold before the recall was announced.

This information comes to us from an American owner of a bZ4X. On the Reddit page, he posted the letter he received from the builder to this effect. In this letter, we see Toyota offering two solutions to the problem.


On the one hand, the automaker is offering owners the option to lend the car while it waits for repairs, with reimbursement for fuel costs and a $5,000 line of credit to cover payments. certain vehicle if it is sponsored. Toyota added an extension to its free charging program and manufacturer's warranty. The second option is much simpler: the manufacturer offers to buy bZ4X immediately!

Toyota of America confirmed this information to The Drive, the American media outlet reported this under a news item. However, it stipulates that certain conditions apply and each case is handled individually. In Canada, none of these are currently applicable, as no bZ4X has been marketed yet. Same observation on the Solterra side.

The recall in question affects a total of 2,600 units worldwide. Of these, only 280 units of the Solterra and bZ4X were available to us, but none of them made it to market when the issue was discovered.

Introducing Toyota Beyond Zero


The bZ4X is the first model in Toyota's new bZ sub-brand - the name standing for "beyond Zero," expressing the environmental leadership the company has pursued since pioneering electrified mobility with the original Prius, the world's first hybrid electric production car, in 1997.

The introduction of the bZ4X strengthens Toyota's multi-technology approach to meet different mobility requirements by offering customers a full line-up of electrified vehicles, including HEVs, PHEVs, BEVs, and FCEVs. Toyota aims to reduce CO2 with products that are easy to use and have strong customer appeal, and these technologies will together help deliver the goal of carbon neutrality.


Zero emissions are only part of Toyota's ambition - as the "beyond" element in bZ makes clear. It is committed to delivering ever-better mobility for all, with products and services that enhance the pleasure of driving, keeping all road-users safe and helping build better societies around the world.


The Toyota bZ4X is a wholly human-centred vehicle, designed to help customers make the change to a BEV with no compromise or inconvenience and maximising opportunities in design, performance and the ownership experience that are specific to pure electric vehicles - going beyond customer's expectations.
