Avondale Toyota Reviews Recent Recall

It's no secret that our favorite Japanese automaker is dedicated to ensuring the safety of motorists on the open road. It's a steadfast commitment that the brand does well. In fact, an impressive dozen vehicles from the new Toyota lineup landed on the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's Top Safety Picks list from the 2013 model year alone.

This standout safety portrayed across the lineup is made possible by Toyota's progressive technologies. But, regardless of these advancements, airbags will always play a crucial role in ensuring both driver and passenger safety.

With that said, Toyota is issuing a recall on a total of 170,000 vehicles covering the Corolla, Matrix, Tundra and the retired Sequoia from 2000 through the 2004 model years. That's due to a potential problem with their airbags.

What's the problem?

When triggered by a collision, airbags generally deploy via a rapid-acting propellant held in a metal canister. In the case of the aforementioned models, the propellant is burning too quickly giving the canister the opportunity to explode and send shrapnel flying into the cabin.

To date there have not been any injuries caused by the faulty system, but Toyota isn't taking any chances. To remedy the problem quickly the Japanese automaker is offering affected drivers a complimentary repair. If you, or someone that you know, is driving one of the aforementioned vehicles simply bring it to our car service center serving greater Avondale.
