Toyota Canada recalls over 140,000 vehicles due to airbag problem

Toyota Canada has announced a recall on 141,214 Avalon, Matrix and Corolla models from 2003-2004.

A defect in the supplemental restraint system could result in an inadvertent deployment of the front airbag(s) and/or seatbelt pretensioner(s). In a non-warranted (non-impact) situation, this could startle the driver and possibly lead to a crash.

Toyota dealers will replace the airbag control module and may install an in-line jumper wiring harness to correct the issue. 

Note: Vehicles that were repaired under the previous recall campaign and did not receive a new airbag control module will also need to be repaired under this campaign.
