What is
Takata Recall?

Certain Toyota models have been recalled for front driver or front passenger airbag inflators that were manufactured by Takata.

Toyota takes the safety of our customers seriously and we are working hard to rectify all affected vehicles, prioritising vehicle rectification based on the location and age of the inflator and parts availability.

What is
the DEFECT WITH THE AIRBAGS Inflator?

In involved vehicles, the non-desiccated propellant that inflates the driver's or passenger's front airbag (model dependent) could absorb moisture and degrade.

If the inflator propellant degrades and the vehicle is involved in a collision, the airbag can go off with too much explosive force, causing sharp metal fragments to shoot out and kill or seriously injure people in the vehicle.

Important FAQs

In involved vehicles, the non-desiccated propellant that inflates the driver's or passenger's front airbag (model dependent) could absorb moisture and degrade. This is either due to deficiencies during the manufacturing process (alpha), or after prolonged exposure to high humidity and fluctuating high temperatures (beta).

It is important to note, moisture intrusion in affected inflator propellant is a result of exposure to: high humidity; and fluctuating high temperatures.

This means the environment (operating location of the vehicle) is a factor, as is the age of a vehicle when assessing the risk of the condition occurring.

If the inflator propellant degrades and the vehicle is involved in a collision, the airbag inflator can go off with too much explosive force, causing sharp metal fragments to shoot out and kill or seriously injure people in the vehicle.

The inflator is a device contained within the airbag assembly. It contains a solid propellant which is ignited in the event airbag deployment is necessary. When ignited, the solid propellant expands into an inert gas, inflating the airbag

Most Takata airbag repairs take between one and two hours. However, depending upon the Dealer’s work schedule, it may be necessary to make a vehicle available for a longer period of time.

No. All affected Takata airbag replacements are completed free of charge to the vehicle owner.

Toyota urges owners to immediately stop driving the vehicle and call a Toyota Dealer to organise towing (free of charge) to have the airbag inflator replaced. Alternatively, subject to a suitable work location, an on-site repair may be completed by a Toyota technician.

Toyota Dealers will arrange any required towing of vehicles under ‘critical recall’ and all rectification will be performed free of charge to minimise inconvenience to the vehicle owner.

Please take note that any replacement airbag installed in your vehicle following a collision or other incident may also be faulty and required check. It is critical that you urgently contact your closest/preferred Toyota Dealer to arrange for the airbag to be checked and replaced, if faulty.
