Identifying features

What are the defects?

Airbag inflator: As it gets older, a combination of high temperatures and humidity can cause the airbag inflator propellant to degrade. If an affected vehicle is involved in a collision triggering the airbag, the metal inflator housing may explode/rupture under too much internal pressure.

What are the hazards?

In the event of an airbag inflator rupture, metal fragments could propel out through the airbag cushion towards the vehicle occupants causing serious injury or fatality.

Owners of affected vehicles should contact their local Toyota dealership or Toyota’s head office directly via the website at https://www.toyota.com.au/contact or email mailto:guestexperience@toyota.com.au to arrange for a replacement airbag inflator free of charge.
