Recall Alert: 320,000 Toyota, Lexus SUVs and Pickup Trucks

2006 Toyota Land Cruiser

CARS.COM

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 320,000 Toyota and Lexus SUVs and pickup trucks, including model-year 2003-06 Toyota Land Cruisers, 2004-06 4Runners, and 2005-06 Tundras and Sequoias; and 2003-06 Lexus LX 470 and 2004-06 GX 470 models

The Problem: The affected vehicles are equipped with side curtain airbags that deploy from the roof in certain types of crashes. Due to improper programming in the airbag control modules, the airbags and seat belt pretensioners could activate unnecessarily under “specific and limited conditions” shortly after startup, increasing the risk of an injury.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the airbag control module with one that has improved programming for free.

What Owners Should Do: Toyota did not immediately announce an owner-notification schedule. Owners can call the automaker at 800-331-4331 for more info.
