2012 TOYOTA YARIS - AIR BAGS:PASSENGER SIDE FRONTAL

Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (Toyota) is recalling certain 2010-2012 Yaris vehicles ever registered in the states of Arizona, Arkansas, Delaware, District of Columbia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia or "Zone B."

These vehicles are equipped with certain air bag inflators assembled as part of the passenger frontal air bag modules used as original equipment or replacement equipment. In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the passenger frontal air bag, these inflators may explode due to propellant degradation occurring after long-term exposure to absolute humidity and temperature cycling.

  • Hazard
    An inflator explosion may result in sharp metal fragments striking the driver or other occupants resulting in serious injury or death.
  • Consumer Action
    Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will replace the passenger frontal air bag assemblies, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin by March 10, 2018. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-800-331-4331. Toyota's numbers for this recall are G0R (Zone B), and H0A (Zone C).
