2012 Scion xB Recall Details

RepairPal Expert Overview on January 10, 2017

The passenger frontal air bag assembly is deployed by an inflator which contains propellant that makes the air bag deploy. This propellant may degrade over time, especially when exposed to humidity and temperature cycling. As a result, the inflator may rupture on deployment, which can send metal shrapnel through the air bag, striking vehicle occupants. This could result in serious injury or death.

Recall repairs on your Toyota or Lexus or Pontiac must be performed by a Toyota, Lexus or General Motors (for Pontiac models) dealership, respectively. Toyota, Lexus and General Motors will notify known owners of affected vehicles beginning in January, 2017. If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Toyota, Lexus or General Motors 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.
