Additional information:

Among the fifty three (53) recalls the NHTSA announced this month comes news of the following:

Logo - Toyota Motor Engineering & ManufacturingToyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (“Toyota”), a Plano Texas establishment and subsidiary of Toyota Motor Corporation, a Toyota City, Japan establishment, has recalled an estimated 138,842 model year 1998-2000 RAV4, 1998-1999 RAV4 EV and Celica and 1997-1998 Supra vehicles marketed, sold and delivered in the United States.

NHTSA Safety Notification 20V033000 reports that these vehicles were equipped with Non-Azide Driver air bag Inflators (“NADI”) and do not contain phase stabilized ammonium nitrate (“PSAN”) propellant. Due to a manufacturing issue, the NADI inflators may absorb moisture, causing the inflators to rupture or the air bag cushion to underinflate.

According to the NHTSA, in the event of a crash necessitating air bag deployment, an inflator rupture may result in metal fragments striking the driver or other occupants. An underinflated air bag may not properly protect the occupant, and increases the risk of serious injury or death.

The remedy for this recall is still under development. The recall is expected to begin March 22, 2020. Owners may contact MMNA Customer Service toll-free at 1-888-648-7820 during normal business hours, Monday to Friday, Central Standard Time (“CST”). Toyota Motor’s designations for this recall are 20TB01 and 20TA01.
