Toyota News: Toyota Issues A Recall For Certain Prius and Lexus CT 200h Models for Airbags

Recommended Posts

Toyota is recalling 482,000 Prius and Lexus CT 200h models for an issue with the side curtain airbags. According to Toyota, the hybrids use air bag inflators composed of two chambers welded together. Some vehicles may have a crack where the weld is. Over time, the crack can grow and cause the pieces to separate.


"If an inflator separates, the CSA could partially inflate, and, in limited circumstances, one or both sections of the inflator could enter the interior of the vehicle," the company said in a statement.


The models involved include,

  • 2010 - 2012 Lexus CT 200h
  • 2010 - 2012 Toyota Prius
  • 2010 - 2012 Toyota Prius Plug-In
The fix involves dealers installing retention brackets on the inflators to prevent it from entering the vehicle.
