Additional information:

Among the 77 recalls the NHTSA has announced this November, comes news of the following:

Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (“Toyota”) has recalled an estimated 16,992 model year 2004-2006 Toyota Scion xA vehicles. The air bag control module for the supplemental restraint system (“SRS ECU”) in the recalled vehicles may experience an internal short, possibly causing the air bags to unintentionally deploy, or become deactivated.

According to the NHTSA, if the air bags and/or seat belt pretensioners unintentionally deploy, it can increase the risk of a crash. Further, if the air bags and/or seat belt pretensioners are deactivated, it can increase the risk of injury in the event of a crash.

Toyota will notify registered owners, and dealers will replace the air bag control module, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin December 24, 2018. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-888-270-9371. Toyota’s designation for this recall is J0W.
