More than 82,750 Cars are Included in the Expanded Takata Airbag Recall

Toyota has expanded its Takata recall for the 2001-03 Avensis, 2001-07 Corolla, and 2006-11 Yaris Sedan.

As with all Takata-related recalls, airbags in the affected vehicles are fitted with propellant that could degrade when exposed to heat and humidity. If one of those cars is in an accident where the airbags are deployed, the metal inflator housing could explode under too much internal pressure sending shrapnel shooting into the cabin.

There’s a serious risk of injury or death, should a faulty Takata airbag be involved in an accident.

A total of 82,756 cars are included in the expanded campaign – a VIN list is attached here

Toyota will contact owners of the affected vehicles and advise them to organise a free replacement inflator with their nearest dealer.

The latest ACCC figures show 3.2 million airbags (78.9 per cent) have been replaced during the Takata recall campaign, leaving 600,000 vehicles (14.8 per cent) on the road with Takata airbag inflators still fitted.

A further 6.3 per cent of vehicles originally included in the recall have been written off, scrapped or unregistered for more than two years, meaning they can’t have their airbag replaced.

There are 24 reported deaths and more than 260 injuries from faulty inflators worldwide. One local motorist was killed by a Takata airbag in July 2017, while another was seriously injured in June of the same year. The ACCC added some 1.1 million vehicles to the compulsory recall last year.

According to the Australian Government, the risk of a defective Takata airbag rupturing may arise between 6 and 25 years after it is installed in a vehicle. In areas of high heat and humidity, the risk of rupture may arise between 6 and 9 years. Concerned owners can check if their vehicle needs a new inflator at
