The hevshop team would like to inform all Toyota Vehicle owners that there has been an airbag recall which has affected quite a number of models as described below. For the safety and security of you and your loved ones, we urge you to check if your vehicle's chassis is under the affected list.
1. What is the recall about?
The recall is about the air bag control systems in the vehicle. Either the (1) Accelerator sensor or (2) the pressure sensor in the internal circuit has been inappropriately manufactured. This would result in the airbag warning light being inproperly lit and the airbag not operating properly during a crash. In situations of car collision, the inability of an airbag to deploy would definitely have an impact on the safety and security of those in the vehicle.
2. Which vehicles affected with the airbag problem?
Unfortunately, many vehicles and types of vehicles were affected by this issue. The Alphard, Vellfire, Prius, Sienta, Noah, Voxy and Esquire were all affected. A total of more than 74,000 vehicles worldwide are affected with this issue. (Full list and link to Toyota.jp recall bulletin is included at the end of the post.
