Toyota recalls Corolla, Corolla Matrix, Sequoia, Tundra, and Lexus SC 430

Toyota Motor Sales, USA, Inc. today announced that it will conduct a safety recall involving approximately 170,000 front passenger airbag inflators installed in several vehicle models.

The involved vehicles are equipped with front passenger airbag inflators which could have been assembled with improperly manufactured propellant wafers. Improperly manufactured propellant wafers could cause the inflator to rupture and the front passenger airbag to deploy abnormally in the event of a crash.

The vehicles involved include certain Toyota Corolla, Corolla Matrix, Sequoia, and Tundra, and Lexus SC 430 models manufactured from 2001 – 2003. More precise vehicle information is being developed, but about 510,000 vehicles may have to be inspected to locate the suspect inflators.

Owners of vehicles subject to this safety recall will receive an owner notification letter by first class mail. The recall remedy will involve inspection of the front passenger air bag, and, if it is equipped with an affected inflator, the inflator will be replaced with a newly manufactured one at no charge to the owner.

Detailed information is available to customers at Toyota, the Toyota Customer Experience at 1 800-331-4331, and Lexus and Lexus Customer Satisfaction (1 800-255-3987).
