Recall Alert: 2004-2005 Toyota RAV4

13406146 1431970983724 jpg

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 160,000 model-year 2004-05 Toyota RAV4 compact SUVs manufactured between May 13, 2003, and Oct. 25, 2005

The Problem: In the recalled vehicles, the driver-side dual-stage frontal airbag may be susceptible to moisture intrusion, which could cause the inflator to rupture or the airbag to deploy unexpectedly. In a crash where the frontal airbag deploys, the airbag inflator could rupture with metal fragments potentially injuring the driver or passengers. 

The Fix: Dealers will replace the driver’s frontal airbag for free.

What Owners Should Do: Toyota will notify affected owners by mid-July. For more info, owners can call Toyota at 800-331-4331 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration at 888-327-4236 for more information.
