Toyota Airbag Recall

Airbag

CBJ — Toyota is recalling 1.7 million vehicles in North America to replace potentially deadly Takata front passenger air bag inflators.

The recall includes 1.3 million vehicles in the U.S. and 400,000 in Canada and is part of the largest series of automotive recalls in North American history.

Takata inflators can explode with too much force and hurl shrapnel into drivers and passengers. At least 23 people have been killed worldwide and hundreds have been injured.

Dealers will either replace the inflator or the entire air bag assembly. Owners will be notified by mail or other means in late January.
