Airbag sensor recall in NZ

Toyota New Zealand is recalling 3,408 Toyota and Lexus models due to a possible concern with the air bag sensor.

Impacted models include the Toyota Corolla, Toyota Hilux, and Lexus NX 200t, manufactured in the second half of 2015.

The recall is due to the possibility that the insulation layers around the pressure sensor may peel over time, causing the airbag warning light to illuminate.

This can also lead to the curtain shield (side) and front airbags becoming deactivated.

There are currently 765 Toyota Corolla, 2,542 Hilux, and 100 Lexus NX200t affected in New Zealand.

The remedy will be completed free of charge by Toyota and Lexus dealerships and will depend on inspection of the vehicle for time of repair.

Owners of the vehicles, which are traceable through registration data, will be contacted by Toyota New Zealand through a remedy owner letter.
