Automaker Toyota is recalling dozens of vehicles due to a defect that could cause their wheels to roll off.
CNN.com reports that Toyota is recalling 260 BZ4X model vehicles for the defect and has advised drivers to stop driving them immediately.
“After low-mileage use, all of the hub bolts on the wheel can loosen to the point where the wheel can detach from the vehicle. If a wheel detaches from the vehicle while driving, it could result in a loss of vehicle control,” Toyota said https://t.co/1OXOJFR2jN
