Toyota Announces Voluntary Safety Recall

March 27, 2014
TORRANCE, Calif., March 27, 2014 – Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc. today announced that it will conduct a voluntary safety recall of approximately 119,000 MY 2003-2004 Avalon sedans.

In the involved Toyota Avalon vehicles, certain circuits within the airbag control module may be susceptible to damage if exposed to electrical noise from other electrical components. In some instances, front airbag(s) and/or seat belt pre-tensioners could inadvertently deploy.

Dealers will remedy the condition by adding an electrical noise filter to the airbag control module.

Owners of vehicles subject to these recalls will receive a notification by first class mail.
