The affected vehicles were modified by Southeast Toyota Distributors to include accessories such as leather seat covers, seat heaters or head-restraint DVD system. During the installation process, the passenger seat occupant sensing system may not have been tested. This could cause the airbags to not deploy or to deploy inappropriately for the passenger’s size, increasing the risk of injury. 

The affected vehicles include:

  • 2009-2013 Highlander and Venza
  • 2009-2012 Tacoma, 4Runner, Camry, Camry Hybrid, Prius and RAV4
  • 2009-2010 Avalon, FJ Cruiser and Highlander Hybrid
  • 2010-2013 Corolla, Sienna and Tundra
  • 2010-2012 Sequoia
  • 2012 Prius V

Southeast Toyota, which operates in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, North Carolina and South Carolina will notify owners before the month’s end, and dealers will inspect and recalibrate the necessary sensors for free. Owners can call Southeast Toyota at 800-301-6859 or NHTSA’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
