By: Toyota

PLANO, Texas, January 12, 2017 – Toyota Motor North America, Inc. today announced that, based on recent information from Takata as required by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, it is expanding its recall involving Takata front passenger air bag inflators.

The involved vehicles are equipped with a particular type of Takata inflator. According to Takata, a safety defect may arise in front passenger air bag inflators in the involved vehicles due to inflator propellant degradation occurring after prolonged exposure to high absolute humidity, high temperatures, and high temperature cycling. This may result in an inflator rupture when the air bag deploys.

This expansion involves approximately 543,000 additional vehicles in the U.S. The following models are included:

◾2008 – 2009 and 2012 Model Year Scion xB

◾2009 and 2012 Model Year Toyota Corolla

◾2009 and 2012 Model Year Toyota Corolla Matrix

◾2007 – 2009 and 2012 Model Year Toyota Yaris

◾2012 Model Year Toyota 4Runner

◾2012 Model Year Toyota Sienna

◾2006 – 2009 and 2012 Model Year Lexus IS250/350

◾2012 Model Year Lexus IS250C/350C

◾2008 – 2009 and 2012 Model Year Lexus IS-F
