Toyota Announces 2011-2019 Corollas Recall for Faulty Airbags, PH not Included

Japanese automotive titan Toyota is now facing its challenge for the year as they are now recalling certain units for the faulty airbags that were installed in more than 3 million vehicles around the world.

The said recall involves 3.4 million vehicles Toyota, with the 2.9 million coming from United States alone.

Among the affected models for Toyota are the 2011-2019 Corolla, 2011-2013 Matrix, 2012-2018 Avalon and 2013-2018 Avalon Hybrid.

The said models may have erratic electronic control unit that could result to incomplete or non-deployment of the airbags. 

However, Toyota Motor Philippines assured that the Corollas available here in the Philippines are not affected by the recall.

In the middle of 2019, TMP called for a recall involving 12,124 units of the Toyota Rush for an issue with its airbag computer.

According to TMP, due to an error in the programming of the Rush’s airbag computer, the vehicle’s curtain shield airbags may deploy “upon impact on the rear wheel,” forcing it to initiate a Special Service Campaign, specifically the units manufactured for the local market from April 2, 2018 to February 7, 2019.
