The automaker says the recall adds model years of the vehicles previously recalled and also covers all remaining dual-stage front passenger inflators of a particular type, as a precautionary measure.
The involved vehicles are equipped with a Takata-produced dual-stage front passenger airbag inflator which could potentially be susceptible to rupture when deployed in a crash. The defective inflators are linked to at least 10 deaths, all but one in a Honda vehicle. The most recent death occurred in a 2006 Ford Ranger.
All known owners of the affected Toyota / Lexus vehicles will be notified by first class mail. Dealers will replace the airbag inflator or the airbag assembly with a newly manufactured one at no cost.
