Toyota is not an unknown word in automobile industry. Toyota Motors is a Japanese brand of automotive manufacturer which is headquartered in Toyota, Japan.
Recently Toyota Motor Corp announced its decision of recalling approx. 2.9 million in Japan, China, Europe and other countries due to faulty airbags and this also includes their popular model Corolla Axio Sedan & RAV4 SUV.
Al-Futtaim motors on Thursday said and announced of beginning special service campaign on nearly 40000 toyota cars in UAE which includes corolla models, Yaris models and Alphard models as well.
According to them while speaking to Khaleej Times, these vehicles were equipped with airbag inflators present for front driver and passengers behind and those inflators could have the chances of degrading due to presence of propellants that result after prolonged exposure to humid and high temperature conditions. Due to this there are chances that this airbag can function abnormally during accidents and can also cause it to rupture which might be at high risk.
But they clarified that the recall of this parts and vehicles was just for “investigative purposes” and precautionary measure and no accidents, injuries or any harm has been reported involving their own vehicles.
As what they are well known for their quality standards and customer satisfaction, Al Futtaim Motors has started to contact those customers who have faced this issue in their Toyota models and they are trying to inspect their vehicles and arranging service booking for sorting it out permanently.
