Vehicles Affected: Approximately 2.9 million model-year 2011-19 Toyota Corolla cars, model-year 2011-13 Matrix hatchbacks, model-year 2012-18 Avalon sedans and model-year 2013-18 Avalon Hybrid sedans
The Problem: During certain crashes, the airbag electronic control unit may malfunction, possibly disabling the deployment of the airbags and/or seat belt pretensioners and increasing the risk of injury.
The Fix: Dealers will inspect the ECU and install a noise filter between the airbag control module and its wire harness, as necessary, for free.
What Owners Should Do: Toyota will begin notifying owners March 17. Owners can call Toyota at 888-270-9371, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
