Is your car affected?

Toyota Ireland has just issued a voluntary recall of 6,577 vehicles.

The affected models are the Toyota Avensis, Corolla, Avensis Verso, Yaris and SC430 made between February 2001 and April 2006.

According to the Competition and Consumer Protection Commission: “The subject vehicles are equipped with front passenger air bag inflators which contain a non-desiccated, phase stabilized ammonium nitrate propellant.”

This means that “a risk may arise in the inflators due to the propellant degradation occurring after prolonged exposure to high absolute humidity, high temperatures, and high temperature cycling.”

Toyota Ireland issued a statement saying that they will be writing to car owners individually to arrange and airbag inspection and replacement.

However, if you have concerns or are unsure if you car is affected, you can contact you nearest Toyota Dealer/Authorised Repairer who will arrange to do the repair free of charge or call 01 419 0222.
