The Japanese based automaker Toyota has recently announced a recall for 1.1 million of its cars globally because of a problem with the airbags.
According to the car manufacturer, a total of 1.1 million Toyota vehicles will be affected by this recall globally and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers in order to get the problem with the airbags fixed. Toyota says that out of the 1.1 million cars, 752, 000 units are Corolla and Corolla Matrix vehicles in the United States.
The affected vehicles have a problem with the airbags which might deploy inadvertently. The IC chip in the airbag control unit can malfunction when it’s receiving electrical interference from other cars and this might lead to the deployment of the airbags when it’s not necessary. Another recall announced by Toyota will affect 385,000 units of the Lexus IS, out of which 270,000 units have been sold across the United States. The repair will take approximately 30 minutes. If you own one of the vehicles mentioned above we advise you to contact your local Toyota dealership as soon as possible.
