PLANO, Texas (April 13, 2021) – Toyota is conducting a safety recall involving certain 2009-2015 Model Year Toyota Venza vehicles in the U.S. Approximately 279,000 vehicles are involved in this recall.
The subject vehicles have a sensor in the driver-side front door that is connected to the airbag system control unit by electrical wires. One of these wires can fracture over time. If this occurs, the airbag warning lamp could illuminate and the sensor in the door could become inoperable. This may prevent the side airbag and curtain shield airbag on the driver side from deploying in certain types of collisions, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash where those airbags are needed.
For all involved vehicles, Toyota dealers will inspect the driver-side front door wire harness and replace it with an improved one, if necessary. Owners of involved vehicles will be notified by the middle of June 2021.
