Toyota Yaris (2001 – 2006)

Published on 23 November 2018

The ammonium nitrate propellant used in the airbag inflator may degrade over time due to heat cycles and exposure to moisture. In the event of the airbag being deployed, the excessive internal pressure may cause the inflator body to rupture and metal fragments may pass through the cushion material causing injury to the rider.

The recall concerns Model Year 2001 to 2006 vehicles.
