toyota airbag recall

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.
