Airbag sensor recall for Toyota and Lexus models

Toyota New Zealand is recalling 3,532* Toyota and Lexus models due to a possible concern with the air bag sensor.

Impacted models include the Toyota Corolla, Toyota Hilux, and Lexus NX 200t, manufactured in the second half of 2015.

The recall is due to the possibility that the insulation layers around the pressure sensor may peel over time, causing the airbag warning light to illuminate. This can also lead to the curtain shield (side) and front airbags becoming deactivated.

There are 765 Toyota Corolla, 2,542 Hilux, and 100 Lexus NX200t’s New Zealand new vehicle models affected.

The remedy will be completed free of charge by Toyota and Lexus dealerships and will depend on inspection of the vehicle for time of repair.

Owners of the vehicles, which are traceable through registration data, will be contacted by Toyota New Zealand through a remedy owner letter.

*A further 35 Prius and 89 RX350h have been added to this recall on the 1st February 2018.

For further information please contact: 0800 TOYOTA (0800 869 682).
