For Models: Lexus SC430, Pontiac Vibe, Toyota Corolla, Toyota Matrix, Toyota Sequoia, Toyota Tundra

Body, Interior & Misc., June 20, 2014

RepairPal Expert Overview:

This limited regional recall is for vehicles currently registered or first sold in Florida, Puerto Rico, Hawaii and the U.S. Virgin Islands, and equipped with Takata-brand air bag inflators. Upon deployment the driver and/or passenger airbag inflator could rupture, increasing the risk of personal injury. Dealers will replace the affected airbag inflator modules to correct this concern.

For Models: Lexus SC430, Pontiac Vibe, Toyota Corolla, Toyota Matrix, Toyota Sequoia, Toyota Tundra

Body, Interior & Misc., June 11, 2014

RepairPal Expert Overview:

When deployed, excessive pressure can build in the passenger front airbag. This could cause the inflator to rupture, increasing the risk of personal injury to vehicle occupants. This recall affects both originally installed passenger front airbags as well as those that were installed as replacement service parts. Toyota and General Motors will replace the passenger front airbag inflator on their respective vehicles involved in this recall.

For Models: Pontiac Vibe, Toyota Corolla, Toyota Highlander, Toyota Matrix, Toyota RAV4, Toyota Tacoma, Toyota Yaris

Body, Interior & Misc., April 9, 2014

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The steering column assembly contains electrical connections for the driver's airbag, commonly called the "clock spring". This spiral cable assembly includes a Flexible Flat Cable (FFC). Due to the shape and location of the FFC's retainer, the FFC could become damaged when the steering wheel is turned. If the FFC is damaged, the driver's airbag could be deactivated. The failure of the driver's airbag to deploy when required increases the risk of injury to the driver. When the parts are available, dealers will replace the spiral cable assembly to correct this concern.

For Models: Toyota Avalon, Toyota Avalon Hybrid, Toyota Camry, Toyota Camry Hybrid, Toyota Corolla

Electrical & Lights, October 17, 2013

RepairPal Expert Overview:

An electrical short can develop in the windshield wiper switch assembly. As a result, the wipers may not function as expected. If the driver's visibility is reduced the risk of a crash increases. Dealers will replace the wiper switch assembly in affected vehicles to correct this concern.

For Models: Lexus SC430, Pontiac Vibe, Toyota Corolla, Toyota Matrix, Toyota Sequoia, Toyota Tundra

Body, Interior & Misc., April 11, 2013

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Airbags use a chemical reaction contained in an inflator module to create the pressure necessary to inflate the bags when deployment is required. These vehicles are being recalled because the front passenger airbag inflator may produce excessive internal pressure when deployed. As a result, the inflator module could rupture, causing metal fragments to strike vehicle occupants. Dealers will inspect and replace any defective passenger front airbag inflator module found.

 

For Models: Scion FR-S, Scion tC, Scion xB, Scion xD, Toyota 4Runner, Toyota Camry, Toyota Camry Hybrid, Toyota Corolla, Toyota FJ Cruiser, Toyota Highlander, Toyota Highlander Hybrid, Toyota Land Cruiser, Toyota Prius, Toyota RAV4, Toyota Sequoia, Toyota Sienna, Toyota Tacoma, Toyota Tundra, Toyota Venza

Body, Interior & Misc., April 9, 2013

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Vehicles have a tire size/weight rating label to inform owners of the carrying capacity of their vehicle. These models are being recalled because the incorrect vehicle weight rating is shown on the information label. This could result in vehicle and tire overloading, increasing the risk of tire failure. Owners will be provided an updated vehicle weight label to correct this concern.

For Models: Pontiac Vibe, Toyota Corolla, Toyota Matrix

Body, Interior & Misc., January 30, 2013

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Certain electrical circuits in the airbag system are susceptible to an internal electrical short circuit. A short circuit can create excessive current flow, damaging the electrical circuit. Damaged electrical circuits could result in an inadvertent deployment of the front airbags and/or seat belt pretensioners. This could increase the risk of injury and the possibility of a vehicle crash. Dealers will install a supplemental wire harness containing an electrical filter between the airbag control module and its wire harness to protect the control module from this electrical interference.

For Models: Pontiac Vibe, Scion xB, Scion xD, Toyota Camry, Toyota Camry Hybrid, Toyota Corolla, Toyota Highlander, Toyota Highlander Hybrid, Toyota Matrix, Toyota RAV4, Toyota Sequoia, Toyota Tundra, Toyota Yaris

Electrical & Lights, October 10, 2012

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Toyota and General Motors are recalling certain models because the power window master switch assembly in some of these vehicles was built using a less precise process for lubricating the internal components of the switch assembly. Irregularities in this lubrication process may cause the power window master switch assemblies to malfunction and overheat. This could result in the switch melting or possibly catching fire. Dealers will inspect and repair or replace the master window switch as necessary.

For Models: Toyota Corolla, Toyota Sienna

Body, Interior & Misc., November 22, 2011

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Southeast Toyota is recalling 518 vehicles equipped with an aftermarket navigation unit or overhead entertainment system, and/or a bluetooth hands-free device. There is a possibility that the front A-pillar trim panel retention clip may have been damaged during the installation of the aftermarket accessory. The trim piece may come loose in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury. Dealers will inspect the A-pillar trim and replace the retaining clip as necessary.

 

For Models: Toyota Corolla, Toyota Matrix

Exhaust & Emissions, December 21, 2010

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Toyota is recalling certain 2005-2008 Corolla and Matrix models because a crack may develop on a circuit board inside the engine control module (ECM). Consequences associated with this defect include: illumination of the Check Engine Light and harsh transmission shifting. The engine may not start or it could stall while driving, which can increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the ECM and replace as necessary.
