Due to a malfunction in the airbag pumps Recall for more than 2770 Toyota and Lexus 2000-2012 models

21/11/2019

The Public Authority for Consumer Protection, in cooperation with Saud Bahwan Automotive Group, has launched a recall campaign for 2770 Toyota and Lexus cars, were 2766 Toyota Corolla and Yaris 2000-2012 models were recalled based on chassis numbers from (JTDKW923X95121492) to (JTDBW22E170121187), and 6 Lexus SC430 2000-2012 models were recalled based on chassis numbers from (JTHFN48Y930032297) to (JTHFN48Y730029852).

 

This recall is due to the possibility of a malfunction in the airbag pumps towards the front passenger because of the degradation of the propellant after prolonged exposure to humidity and high temperatures. This may cause the airbag to rupture if it is swollen, which will lead to flying and splattering the sharp metal fragments rapidly inside the car, which may cause injury or death of the car occupants. Accordingly, the company will change the airbag inflator propeller. 

 

The recalls underscore the Authority's efforts in the field of traffic safety in cooperation with automotive dealers to preserve the lives and safety of consumers, and provide the necessary protection for consumers, in line with its keenness to conduct continuous reviews of all products in the Sultanate’s market.
