Faulty airbags have interrupted an otherwise quiet May on the recall front for Toyota, with approximately 96,000 Corolla Cross SUVs affected by the issue.

Affected vehicles include model-year 2022-23 non-hybrid Corolla Cross SUVs. The issue is with the front passenger airbag, which may not deploy properly due to a manufacturing error in the instrument panel where the airbag is located. As a result, there’s an increased risk of injury during a crash.

To resolve the issue, dealers will inspect and replace the instrument panel, as necessary, for free. Until the vehicle has been inspected and the issue resolved, however, the automaker recommends that no one sit in the front passenger seat of an affected vehicle. Toyota will begin notifying owners by late July, but those with questions in the meantime can contact the automaker at 800-331-4331, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
