Air bag defect forces recall

TOYOTA will recall 181,797 vehicles over an air bag defect in China.

The recall was filed by GAC Toyota Motor and Tianjin FAW Toyota Motor to the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ).

Starting Saturday, Toyota will recall 73,084 New Highlander vehicles manufactured between May 5, 2015 and February 4, 2016, and 98,218 Levin models produced between May 4, 2015 and February 4, 2016, as well as 5,804 Levin hybrid cars produced between October 11, 2015 and February 4, 2016, according to the AQSIQ.

The recall also includes 4,691 Corolla hybrid cars made by Tianjin FAW Toyota Motor between November 21, 2015 and February 2, 2016.

There are concerns that flawed acceleration transducer parts in the air bags of affected vehicles may cause air bags to malfunction, which could pose a threat to safety, the statement said.
