Toyota Avensis: Danger of gas generator bursting

Toyota is recalling 487,000 Avensis T25s manufactured between 2002 and 2006 to workshops worldwide. The reason for the measure is a chemical decomposition of the propellant in the driver’s airbag gas generator, which can cause the gas generator to burst if the airbag is triggered. In Germany, 76,499 vehicles are affected.

The driver airbags are replaced in the workshop. The KBA is monitoring the measure under the reference number “012352”, and the internal designation is “22SMD-115”.

What the owner should do?

If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.

If you wish to know more about eventual problems of a specific car (e.g. real mileage, potential traffic accidents damages, odometer rollback, repairs, etc.), then we suggest going to HPI-Check.
