Toyota Recalls 803K U.S. Vehicles For Air Bag Defect

Toyota is recalling 803,000 vehicles in the U.S. because their air bags or power steering could stop working.

The Camry and Camry hybrid, Avalon and Avalon hybrid and Venza from the 2012 and 2013 model years are affected.

Toyota says water from the air conditioning condenser can leak onto the air bag control module and cause a short circuit. That could illuminate the air bag warning light, disable the air bag or cause the air bags to deploy inadvertently.

The power steering assist function could also become inoperable if the air bag control module is damaged, making the vehicles harder to steer.

Toyota knows of two minor injuries, but no accidents, related to the defect.

Toyota dealers will repair the problem for free. For more information, click on the link below.
