We at Atkins Kroll care greatly about your safety. We are providing the following information to keep you informed of the details specific to this recall.

This Safety Recall applies to owners of vehicles originally sold in, or currently/previously registered in, areas of High Absolute Humidity, encompassing the following states: Texas, Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, South Carolina, Florida, Hawaii, and Louisiana. In addition, it includes Puerto Rico, Guam, Saipan, American Samoa, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

 

What is the condition?

The subject vehicles are equipped with front passenger airbag inflators which may have been manufactured in such a way as to have a potential for the intrusion of moisture over time. Depending on the circumstances, this could create excessive internal pressure when the airbag is deployed and cause the inflator to rupture. In the event of an inflator rupture, metal fragments could pass through the airbag cushion material, striking the vehicle occupants and potentially resulting in serious injury or death.

 

What is the Inflator?

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

 

What is Atkins Kroll going to do?

Atkins Kroll will replace the front passenger airbag inflator at no charge to the vehicle owner. (For certain models, the front passenger airbag assembly may be replaced.)

 

Are there any warnings that this condition exists?

No. There are no warnings that this condition exists. However, the condition does not cause the airbag to activate when it should not. Also, the front passenger airbag is designed to inflate only in certain moderate to severe crashes.

 

What should you do?

Toyota strongly recommends that you have this Safety Recall remedy performed immediately. Please contact any Atkins Kroll to schedule an appointment to have your front passenger airbag inflator replaced free of charge. When taking your vehicle to the dealership for your service appointment, it is recommended that only the driver occupy the vehicle. If you are uncomfortable driving the vehicle to the dealership, please contact Atkins Kroll who will arrange for vehicle pick up. Until the remedy is performed, the front passenger seat should NOT be occupied.

 

Are there concerns with other airbags in the vehicle?

No, this condition only applies to the front passenger airbag inflator. Other airbags in the vehicle are not affected by this condition.

 

Will Toyota disconnect the involved airbag or the other airbags in my vehicle?

Atkins Kroll has sufficient quantities of replacement parts to complete remedy repairs. Owners should promptly visit Atkins Kroll to receive their replacement airbag inflator and system check. Airbag assemblies are integral parts of the overall vehicle safety system, and the integrity of the system should always be checked by drivers observing the dash mounted warning lights. Toyota technicians will not disconnect the airbag system.
