Toyota Recalling 3,235 Units for Faulty Occupant Sensing System

Toyota announced a recall today that affects 3,235 units, and concerns the occupant sensing system in the passenger seats.

During modification by Southeast Toyota Distributors, the passenger occupant sensing system was not tested, which may result in the seat not recognizing a passenger, and therefore not deploying the airbag in the event of a collision.

The affected vehicles are as follows: model year 2009-2012 Tacoma, 4Runner, Camry, Camry Hybrid, Prius, and RAV4; model year 2009-2010 Avalon, FJ Cruiser, and Highlander Hybrid; model year 2010-2013 Corolla, Sienna and Tundra; model year 2009-2013 Highlander and Venza; model year 2012 Prius V; and model year 2010-2012 Sequoia.

Toyota will notify affected owners, and fix the issue free of charge. For more info, contact Toyota at Toyota at 1-800-301-6859.
