Toyota Recalls 2.9 Million Vehicles

By Staff Writer January 23, 2020

Toyota is conducting a safety recall involving certain 2011-19 model year Corolla, 2011-13 model year Matrix, 2012-18 model year Avalon, and 2013-18 model year Avalon Hybrid vehicles in the U.S. Approximately 2.9 million vehicles are involved in this recall. 

The subject vehicles may be equipped with an electronic control unit (ECU) from a specific supplier designed to receive signals from crash sensors and deploy the airbags and seat belt pretensioners.  The ECU may not have adequate protection against certain electrical noise that can occur in certain crashes, such as severe underride crashes. This can lead to incomplete or nondeployment of the airbags and/or seat belt pretensioners. Airbag non-deployment and/or lack of seat belt pretensioner operation can increase the risk or severity of injury in a crash.
