Also included in this recall filing is 98,194 model-year 2003-2008 Toyota Corolla Matrix vehicles, located throughout the U.S., that previously received an interim air bag inflator replacement.

Issue

These vehicles are equipped with certain air bag inflators assembled as part of the passenger frontal air bag modules used as original equipment or replacement equipment. In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the passenger frontal air bag, these inflators may explode due to propellant degradation occurring after long-term exposure to absolute humidity and temperature cycling.

Remedy

Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will replace the passenger frontal air bag assemblies with an alternate inflator, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin by March 10, 2018. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-800-331-4331. Toyota’s numbers for this recall are G0R (Zone B), and H0A (Zone C), J0A (Matrix Zone A), J0A (Matrix Zone A), J0A (Matrix Zone A).
