Vehicles Affected: Approximately 7,600 model-year 2016 Toyota Prius hybrids
The Problem: A component in the front passenger airbag assembly may have been improperly welded or misassembled. This could allow stored compressed gas to escape without a deployment signal, resulting in the partial inflation of the airbag and increasing the risk of an injury or crash. The condition has been observed when vehicles are parked and unoccupied for a period of time, the automaker said.
The Fix: Dealers will replace the front passenger airbag assembly with a new one for free.
