2003 Toyota Camry Recalls

Toyota Recalls 2002–2004 Camrys Due to Defective Air Bags

Toyota is recalling 2002–2004 Camry models with curtain shield air bags (CSA) because one or both curtain air bags may be twisted near the inflator.

Dealers will inspect the CSA and replace the air bag assembly if necessary.
