Replacement of Takata-produced front driver and passenger airbag inflators

In line with Toyota’s global policy, Toyota SA Motors has initiated a recall campaign to replace Takata-produced front airbag inflators for the following vehicles:

Models Manufactured between Component
Corolla, Yaris & Run-X 2002 to 2007 (inclusive) Passenger front airbag inflator
RAV4, Hilux & Fortuner July 2003 to Dec 2005 Driver front airbag inflator

Certain types of airbag inflators manufactured by Takata were found to have a potential for moisture intrusion over time. As a result, they could be susceptible to abnormal deployment in a crash. The relationship of moisture intrusion, if any, to the risk of inflator rupture is not known. To date, worldwide no injuries or fatalities caused by this condition have been reported.

The recall campaign will commence once all the required components are available at local Toyota dealers. Affected owners will then be notified by a Toyota dealer to bring their vehicle in for the service action. Please note that the replacement of the component will take one to two hours at no cost of the owner.

Toyota has rededicated itself to strengthening its commitment to safety and quality. In part, that means refocusing on putting customers and people first, by taking appropriate action.
