AIR BAGS

Recall number: 13V133000
Recall date: 04/11/2013

Problem Summary:

TOYOTA IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2002 THROUGH 2004 TOYOTA COROLLA, COROLLA MATRIX, SEQUOIA, TUNDRA, LEXUS SC, AND PONTIAC VIBE VEHICLES TO ADDRESS A SAFETY DEFECT IN THE PASSENGER SIDE FRONTAL AIR BAG WHICH MAY PRODUCE EXCESSIVE INTERNAL PRESSURE CAUSING THE INFLATOR TO RUPTURE UPON DEPLOYMENT OF THE AIR BAG. THIS RECALL ADDRESSES BOTH THE PASSENGER SIDE FRONTAL AIR BAGS THAT WERE ORIGINALLY INSTALLED IN THE VEHICLES, AS WELL AS REPLACEMENT AIR BAGS THAT MAY HAVE BEEN INSTALLED AS REPLACEMENT SERVICE PARTS. A REPLACEMENT AIR BAG MAY HAVE BEEN INSTALLED, AS ONE EXAMPLE, IF A VEHICLE HAD BEEN IN A CRASH NECESSITATING THE REPLACEMENT OF THE PASSENGER SIDE FRONTAL AIR BAG.

Consequence:

IN THE EVENT OF A CRASH NECESSITATING DEPLOYMENT OF THE PASSENGER'S FRONTAL AIR BAG, THE INFLATOR COULD RUPTURE WITH METAL FRAGMENTS STRIKING AND POTENTIALLY SERIOUSLY INJURING THE PASSENGER SEAT OCCUPANT OR OTHER OCCUPANTS.

Corrective Action:

TOYOTA WILL NOTIFY OWNERS OF AFFECTED TOYOTA AND LEXUS VEHICLES AND GENERAL MOTORS WILL NOTIFY OWNERS OF AFFECTED PONTIAC VIBE VEHICLES. TOYOTA, LEXUS, AND GM DEALERS WILL INSPECT VEHICLES, AND WHERE A DEFECTIVE AIR BAG INFLATOR IS IDENTIFIED, THE INFLATOR WILL BE REPLACED, FREE OF CHARGE. THE MANUFACTURER HAS NOT YET PROVIDED THE AGENCY WITH A NOTIFICATION SCHEDULE. TOYOTA AND LEXUS OWNERS MAY CONTACT TOYOTA AT 1-800-331-4331. PONTIAC VIBE OWNERS MAY CONTACT GM AT 1-800-521-7300.


AIR BAGS

Recall number: 13V029000
Recall date: 01/30/2013

Problem Summary:

TOYOTA IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2003-2004 COROLLA AND COROLLA MATRIX VEHICLES AND 2003-2004 PONTIAC VIBE VEHICLES. THE SUPPLEMENTAL RESTRAINT SYSTEM (SRS) CIRCUITS ARE SUSCEPTIBLE TO INTERNAL SHORTING. THE ELECTRICAL SHORT MAY CREATE AN ABNORMAL CURRENT FLOW AND INCREASED HEAT WHICH CAN DAMAGE THE CIRCUITS. THIS COULD RESULT IN AN INADVERTENT DEPLOYMENT OF THE FRONT AIRBAGS AND/OR SEAT BELT PRETENSIONERS.

Consequence:

INADVERTENT DEPLOYMENT OF THE AIRBAGS OR THE SEAT BELT PRETENSIONERS MAY INCREASE THE RISK OF INJURY AND THE POSSIBILITY OF A VEHICLE CRASH.

Corrective Action:

TOYOTA WILL NOTIFY THEIR OWNERS, AND GENERAL MOTORS WILL NOTIFY THEIRS. DEALERS WILL INSTALL A SUPPLEMENTAL HARNESS CONTAINING AN ELECTRICAL FILTER BETWEEN THE AIRBAG CONTROL MODULE AND ITS WIRE HARNESS, FREE OF CHARGE. THE RECALL BEGAN ON MARCH 13, 2013. FOR MORE INFORMATION, TOYOTA OWNERS MAY CALL 1-800-331-4331 AND PONTIAC OWNERS MAY CALL 1-800-620-7668.
