#3

PLANO, Texas (January 21, 2020) – Toyota is conducting a safety recall involving certain vehicles equipped with a potentially affected Takata-produced single-stage non-azide front driver airbag inflator:

  • 1998–2000 Model Year Toyota RAV4
  • 1998–1999 Model Year RAV4 EV
  • 1998–1999 Model Year Celica
  • 1997–1998 Model Year Supra

Approximately 139,000 vehicles in the United States are involved in this recall.

The subject vehicles are equipped with a front driver airbag with an inflator made by Takata. According to information provided by Takata, the airbag may not deploy properly. This could result in abnormal deployment of the airbag or the chance of an inflator rupture. If an abnormal deployment or inflator rupture occurs, this could increase the risk of injury to vehicle occupants.

Toyota is currently investigating the remedy for this issue and will announce it once available. Toyota will notify owners via first class mail by late-March.
