Gulf States Toyota is recalling 1,121 2017 Toyota Highlander and Highlander Hybrid SUVs equipped with accessory roof rail cross bars because the fasteners for the roof rails may not be torqued properly, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.

“The roof rails may loosen and possibly detach from the vehicle, becoming a road hazard and increasing the risk of a crash,” NHTSA warned on its website.

Gulf States Toyota (GST) is one of the world’s largest independent distributors of Toyota vehicles and parts. The company’s dealers will inspect and properly torque the fasteners to fix the problem. There will be no charge for this service.

The recall is expected to begin Sept. 25. Vehicle owners can reach GST customer service at (800) 444-1074. GST's number for this recall is 17R3.
