Toyota to recall 43,221 vehicles in US over faulty airbags

Toyota Motor Corp. is recalling 43,221 Yaris vehicles in the U.S. over fears of faulty airbags, that might either not deploy or deploy improperly in a crash, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The recall affects Toyota Yaris models 2015-2017, manufactured June 26, 2014-Jan. 18, 2017.

The issue was caused by the wire harnesses for the side airbag sensors, located within the front doors, which might crack and corrode, causing the front seat side airbags and the curtain shield airbags to either not deploy or deploy improperly. This can lead to serious injuries or even death.

The recall is expected will begin June 10.

Dealers will replace the wire harness assembly in the front doors, as necessary, free of charge.
