Japanese automaker Toyota will recall more than 160,000 RAV4 sport-utility vehicles sold in China due to a rear suspension problem, the country's consumer quality watchdog said on Friday.

The recall affects 13,474 vehicles produced between July 21, 2005 and November 28, 2008, as well as 147,310 vehicles manufactured between February 6, 2009 and October 31, 2010, the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection, and Quarantine said.

Nuts on the lower swing arms of the vehicles' rear suspension may become loose, causing adjusting levers to disconnect from the swing arms and cause safety risks, the administration said.

Toyota will make the appropriate repairs, and the recall will begin on September 3.
