Among the eighty-five (85) recalls the NHTSA announced in July came 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 3,533 model year 2022 Toyota Rav4, Toyota Rav4 Hybrid and Toyota Rav4 Prime compact Sport Utility Vehicles (“SUVs”) marketed, sold and delivered in the United States.

Recall Category: Air Bags – Front Air Bag may not deploy properly in apparent contravention of US FMVSS 208

NHTSA Safety Notification 22V519000 reports the Front Passenger Seat may have been assembled with interference between internal parts that may cause the Occupant Classification System (“OCS”) Sensor to incorrectly detect the occupant. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 208, “Occupant Crash Protection”.

According to the NHTSA, incorrect detection of an occupant may result in improper Air Bag deployment during a crash, motor vehicle collision (“MVC”) or other impact event, increasing the consequential risk of serious injury and/or life-changing results.

==> If you have a medical emergency, please contact 9-1-1, your closest hospital or emergency center equipped to properly treat lacerations, concussions, bone fractures, amputation, central nervous system (“CNS”) damage and/or internal injuries.
