Toyota Recalls 645,000 Vehicles for Electrical Problem Affecting Air Bag Inflation

Roughly 645,000 vehicles are being recalled worldwide by Toyota to fix an electrical problem that could prevent the inflation of air bags during a crash.

The vehicles under recall include certain Toyota Prius and Lexus RX and NX SUVs. Additionally, the following models are also cited as having this problem: Toyota Alphard, Vellfire, Sienta, Noah, Voxy, Esquire, Probox, Succeed, Corolla, Highlander, Levin and Hilux models. These vehicles were all produced between May of 2015 to March of 2016.

Over time, the automaker says an open electrical circuit could deteriorate and potentially set off an air bag warning light. If this happens, it could stop the side and front air bags from deploying and it could result in an injury or even death. Owners of these vehicles should take their car to the dealership to have them inspect the serial numbers on sensors. If they are among those listed in the recall, they will replace them at no cost to owners.

Owners will be notified by Toyota starting in March 2018.
