Toyota doesn't mess around when it comes to keeping motorists in the greater Ardmore area, and beyond, safe. For that reason the Japanese automaker is recalling a total of 1.7 million vehicles, from the 2000 through 2004 model years, to rectify an issue that concerns a defective part in the airbags.

The problem pertains to the safety feature's deployment method. Manufactured by a widely used third party, the propellants that balloon the airbags are burning too quickly. Although it would seem beneficial, that rapid rate can cause the canister that contains the igniter to rupture and send shrapnel flying dangerously throughout the cabin.

It's important to note that there haven't been any reports of injuries or accidents as a result of the faulty airbags. Of course, Toyota would like to remedy the error before a grave situation occurs, so the automaker is announcing a complimentary mend for all affected autos.

The recall includes cars from the retired Sequoia lineup as well as the Toyota Corolla, Tundra and Matrix models. If you drive one of these vehicles from the four aforementioned generations, simply stop by our car repair center at Sloane Toyota.
