Toyota has announced that it’s recalling 1.73 million vehicles to address a faulty airbag module made by the Takata Corporation. Takata’s faulty airbags have also been recalled by Honda (1.14 million), Nissan, (480,000) and Mazda (45,643).
A Toyota statement explains that the recalled vehicles were installed with improperly manufactured propellant wafers which could cause the airbag’s inflator to rupture, leading to abnormal deployment of the airbag in the event of a crash. Five incidents have been reported to Toyota. Affected vehicle models include the Camry and Corolla manufactured between November 2000 and March 2004.
