Toyota is recalling certain 1997 Corollas because a mechanical shock (like moving the seat or suddenly releasing the parking brake) to the air bag computer soon after the engine is started can cause the air bag to deploy inadvertently. This can cause injury to an occupant. Dealers will repair the air bag computer.
