That quality reputation.
Toyota has just announced another recall, this time involving three different models.
The company has called back the 2018-2019 Toyota Tundra and Sequoia, along with the 2019 Avalon due to an issue with the airbag deployment software. According to Toyota, the airbag control module could flip itself into a fault-detection mode upon vehicle startup, which would render the airbags useless in the event of an accident.
According to Toyota, roughly 188,000 vehicles are affected in total, with 185,000 of them residing in North America alone. Toyota will begin notifying owners of the recall campaign later this month, and will be instructed to schedule a service appointment at the dealership to have the airbag control software recalibrated. It's unknown if any injuries have been caused by the wonky programming, but concerned owners may contact Toyota's customer service line at 800-331-4331.
Or perhaps more conveniently, you can also search for recall information through Toyota's dedicated vehicle recall web portal, which allows you to search for active recalls on Toyota vehicles using a VIN.
This recall is totally separate from the recall issued involving 2.4 million of the company's hybrid vehicles earlier this month. Prius and Auris models subject to the recall may lose all power or stall instead of entering limp mode if there is a fault with the hybrid drivetrain.
