Recall Alert: 2016 Toyota Prius

2016 Toyota Prius


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.

What Owners Should Do: Toyota will begin notifying owners in November. Owners can call the automaker at 800-331-4331.
