What are the defects?

Airbag inflator: As it gets older, a combination of high temperatures and humidity can cause the airbag inflator propellant to degrade. If an affected vehicle is involved in a collision triggering the airbag, the metal inflator housing may explode/rupture under too much internal pressure.

What are the hazards?

In the event that a defective airbag inflator ruptures, metal fragments may propel out through the airbag cushion towards the vehicle occupants causing serious injury or fatality.

What should consumers do?

Owners of affected vehicles should contact their local Toyota dealership or Toyota’s head office directly via the website at (link is external)(link is external) or email (link sends e-mail)(link sends e-mail) to arrange for a replacement airbag inflator free of charge.

Sorry about this I tried to post on the original thread but because of the inability to search for a thread had to do it this way -- and it has not come through right either but it did not allow me to correct it either.
