Corolla Recall....air Bag Cable....

Recommended Posts

Just reading Corolla's have a recall for the airbag cable. Says all Toy models involved were from 2003-2013 and pretty much built everywhere. Hope this isn't a dangerous deal.

I thought it was just for the Pontiac Vibes? Maybe they expanded it? On the Vibes, it had something to do with the spiral cable - wondering if that was a common part in the other models.

I read it is 2009 - 2010 Corolla/Matrix/Pontiac Vibes regarding the spiral cable issue.

This is from the official Toyota website on Toyota.com

 

My 2013 Corolla is not mentioned in this recall.

 

 

2010 - 2013 Corolla are for the seats and potential air bag issue, but it keeps mentioning SouthEast Toyota, which I do not understand what that is suppose to mean. This is from the NHTSA website.

 

Report Receipt Date: JAN 16, 2013
NHTSA Campaign Number: 13V014000
Component(s): AIR BAGS , SEATS

 

SUMMARY:

Southeast Toyota Distributors, LLC (SET) is recalling certain models interspersed through model years 2009 through 2013 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 model year Corolla, Sienna and Tundra; model year 2009-2013 Highlander and Venza; model year 2012 Prius V; and model year 2010-2012 Sequoia. During modification by SET to include accessories such as leather seat covers, seat heaters or headrest DVD systems, these vehicles may not have had the passenger seat occupant sensing system calibration tested. Without passing the calibration test, the occupant sensing system may not operate as designed.

CONSEQUENCE:

If the front passenger seat occupant sensing system is out of calibration, the front passenger airbags may not deploy or they may deploy inappropriately for the passenger's size and position. This could increase the risk of personal injury during the event of a vehicle crash necessitating airbag deployment.

REMEDY:

Southeast Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will test the sensitivity of the occupant detection sensors, and recalibrate them as necessary. The recall began on March 21, 2013. Owners may contact Southeast Toyota at 1-800-301-6859.

NOTES:

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

It means that vehicles in their marketing area may have been modified by Southeast Toyota Distributors before release to the dealers. These mods may not have been properly tested before shipping.
