Toyota announced a recall of about 116,000 vehicles that could lose their driver-side air bags due to problems with spiral cables.
The Toyota and Lexus recall includes these models:
- 2023 Toyota Corolla
- 2023 Toyota Corolla Cross
- 2023 Toyota Corolla Cross Hybrid
- 2023 Toyota Highlander
- 2023 Toyota Highlander Hybrid
- 2023 Toyota Tacoma
- 2024 Lexus RX
- 2024 Lexus RX Hybrid
According to Toyota, the spiral cable assembly in the steering column may lose its electrical connection on the circuit that controls the driver’s air bag.
A driver will see an illuminated air bag warning light and the driver’s frontal air bag may not deploy in a crash.
About 6,000 of the vehicles are recalled in Canada.
Toyota did not announce more details about the recall, but owners should watch for recall letters in September.
Toyota and Lexus dealerships will inspect the serial numbers of the spiral cables and replace them with new cables if needed.
Toyota owners with questions may call 800-331-4331 and Lexus customers may call 800-255-3987.
