What are the defects?

As it gets older, a combination of high temperatures and humidity can cause the airbag inflator propellant to degrade.

What are the hazards?

If exposed to long periods of high air humidity and temperature fluctuations, the airbag may deploy with too much force in a collision. This may result in metal shrapnel entering the vehicle cabin at high speed, striking vehicle occupants and potentially causing severe injury or death.

What should consumers do?

Toyota is contacting all known owners of affected vehicles. Consumers should contact their nearest Toyota dealership to arrange for inspection and repair, free of charge.

For further information, consumers can contact Toyota on 1800 987 366 (Monday to Friday, 8am - 6pm AEDT) or email recallsupport@toyota.dataresponse.com.au
