Toyota Announces Recall of 3.37 Million Vehicles Due to Airbag and Emissions Issues
Toyota Motor Manufacturing issued two recalls of 3.37 million vehicles Wednesday morning, citing possible faults in the airbag deployment system and fuel tanks of certain models.
The recall affects hybrid models of the Prius and Lexus CT200h made between 2010 and 2012. According to the recall, a small crack in one of the welds could cause the airbag to inflate unexpectedly sending pieces of the inflator into the cabin.
The second recall involves the fuel tank of Prius hybrids and Corolla compacts produced between 2006 and 2015. The manufacturer says a mechanism in the fuel tank responsible for releasing evaporated fuel could crack resulting in small amounts of fuel leaking out when drivers fill the tank.
If your vehicle is affected by either of the recall, contact your local Toyota dealer for information on how to get it fixed.
