Toy­ota re­calls trucks, SUVs and cars to fix air bag prob­lem

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - BUSINESS -

DETROIT - Toy­ota is re­call­ing nearly 188,000 pickup trucks, SUVs and cars world­wide be­cause the air bags may not in­flate in a crash.

The re­call cov­ers 2018 and 2019 Tun­dra pick­ups and Se­quoia SUVs as well as 2019 Avalon sedans.

Toy­ota says the air bag con­trol com­puter can er­ro­neously de­tect a fault when the ve­hi­cles are started. With a fault, the air bags may not de­ploy in a crash. The com­pany wouldn’t say if the prob­lem has caused any in­juries. Toy­ota will no­tify own­ers and deal­ers will up­date the air bag con­trol soft­ware. The re­call is ex­pected to be­gin Oct. 22.

Toy­ota says the re­call cov­ers about 185,000 ve­hi­cles in North Amer­ica and 2,600 in other mar­kets.
