Recall roundup: Several Toyota and Lexus vehicles in Australia

Toyota and Lexus have announced a recall for several models in Australia because of a problem with the front passenger airbag.

According to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), there are a total of 19,600 Toyota and Lexus vehicles which will be affected by this recall. Owners of these cars will have to take a trip back to the dealers in order to get the problem with the airbag solved. The ACCC says that the front passenger airbag may have been manufacture improperly and, in the case of a crash, will deploy abnormally, increasing the risk of injury.

The affected vehicles are the Toyota Corolla, Toyota Avensis Verso and the Lexus SC430. They have been all produced between January 2001 and May 2003. The car manufacturer’s dealers will inspect the affected cars and make the necessary repairs / replacements free of charge. Owners of these models will be notified by mail and asked to make an appointment at a company’s dealership. Replacing the airbag inflator will take between 1 and 2.5 hours in the Toyota and 5.5 hours in the Lexus models. For more details on the subject, owners should contact their local dealership.
