Toyota has recently announced a recall for some of its models because of a potential problem with the air conditioning condensers.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, owners of the Toyota Camr,y the Avalon and the Venza sedans will have to take a trip back to the dealers, because of a problem with the air conditioning sensors. The NHTSA says that the water from the AC condenser can actually leak onto the airbag control module and this could trigger the airbag to deploy suddenly. If this happens, the chance of a crash and / or injury will increase.
Besides the airbag module, Toyota has also raised concerns on the power steering being affected too, so if you own one of the vehicles mentioned above, you should definitely contact your local Toyota dealership in order to find out more about the problem. The recall is affecting approximately 885,000 units of the Toyota Camry, Toyota Avalon and Toyota Venza, including 44,000 in Canada, 10,600 in Mexico, 9,100 in Saudi Arabia and a few in other countries. The vehicles mentioned above are from the 2012 and 2013 model years.
