June 11, 2014 Toyota Canada Inc., announced it will be notifying owners of a modified remedy procedure for vehicles affected by an April, 2013 recall involving front passenger airbag inflators.
The 2013 recall remedy involved inspection of the front passenger air bag, and, if equipped with an affected inflator, the inflator would be replaced with a newly manufactured one at no charge to the owner. Toyota has determined that the involved serial numbers provided by the supplier did not include all of the potentially involved inflators. For vehicles which have previously been inspected and did not receive a replacement inflator, Toyota will re-notify the owners and replace the inflator with a new one. For vehicles which have not received the 2013 recall remedy previously, Toyota is changing the remedy from "inspect and replace the inflator if it is involved" to "replace the inflator with a new one".

Toyota Air Bags Could Increase Risk to Passengers

The involved vehicles were equipped with front passenger airbag inflators which could have been assembled with improperly manufactured propellant. Improperly manufactured propellant could cause the inflator to rupture and the front passenger airbag to deploy abnormally in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury to the occupant.
