Toyota Motor Corporation Australia Limited — Toyota Echo (NCP10/13) & RAV4 (ACA22/23)
What are the defects?
The front driver's airbag inflator may be susceptible to moisture intrusion over time resulting in degradation of the inflator propellant.
What are the hazards?
In the event of an accident requiring front driver's airbag deployment, abnormal inflator deployment and rupture may occur resulting in metallic projectile fragments increasing the risk of injury to occupants.
What should consumers do?
Once parts become available, owners will be re-notified inviting them to make an appointment with their preferred Toyota Dealer to have the driver’s side front airbag inflator replaced for a second time, as the original airbag inflator did not contain a desiccant (drying agent).
