Toyota recalls more than 3 million cars due to security concerns

January 22, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

The largest number of cars recalled is located in the United States. Representatives of the brand said that the repair will be free.

Japanese auto giant Toyota spoke about the launch of one of the largest recall campaigns in the brand’s history. Possible malfunction may be on 3.4 million Toyota cars. It has already been said that the cars that fall under the review are located in different countries of the world where the brand is represented. However, the vast majority is registered in the United States – 2.9 million units. The problem is the car’s security system. The reason is a possible malfunction of the electronic control unit, which is responsible for the timely deployment of airbags.

The SRS system on problematic vehicles is not protected from power surges and electronic interference that occurs in the event of an accident. As a result, the unit may fail, and the pillow will not open.

 The manufacturer has already named the models on which such a problem may arise. They were the Corolla sedan 2011-2019, the Matrix compact van, which rolled off the assembly line from 2011 to 2013, as well as the executive sedans Avalon and Avalon Hybrid 2012-2018. The owners of these cars will be notified of the need to come to the service center, where they will carry out diagnostics and fix the malfunction. All work will be free of charge.
