Recall 16V937000

Passenger Frontal Air Bag Does Not Fully Inflate In A Crash

Recall Details

The passenger frontal air bag assembly may have been manufactured without ignition booster tablets. This would cause the air bag to not inflate properly in an accident. Dealers will replace the passenger side air bag module free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The passenger frontal air bag may not fully inflate in an accident. As a result, an occupant may not be fully protected, increasing risk of injury.

What Should You Do?

Recall repairs on your Toyota or Lexus must be performed by a Toyota or Lexus dealership, respectively. Toyota and Lexus will notify known owners of affected vehicles beginning in December, 2016. If you did not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Toyota or Lexus dealerships. They will also check for any other incomplete recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
