- The Danger:
- There are two separate recalls for Toyota vehicles. One recall involves vehicles with airbags that may not deploy. An electrical connection with a spiral cable assembly could become damaged when the steering wheel is turned, which would illuminate an airbag warning light and could disable the driver's airbag.
The other recall involves vehicles that have a problem with the seat rails for driver's and some front-passenger seats. The springs that help lock the seat into position after it is moved forward or back may break, preventing the seat from being locked. There have been no injuries or accidents associated with either recall.
- The airbag recall includes 1.3 million Toyota vehicles in the U.S. The affected vehicles are the 2009-10 Corolla, the 2009-10 Matrix, the 2008-10 Highlander, the 2009-10 Tacoma, the 2006-09 RAV4, and the 2006 Yaris vehicles.
The seat recall includes 472,500 vehicles in the U.S., including about 158,000 2006-10 Yaris hatchbacks, about 250,000 2007-2010 Yaris sedans, and about 64,000 2008-2010 Scion xD vehicles.
