    Subject:
    Safety Recall G0P (Interim G1P) – Interim Notice
    Multiple Models and Model Years Takata Front Passenger Airbag Inflator (Zone A)

    Background:
    On May 4, 2016, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced an expansion of the Takata Airbag Inflator Recalls. This announcement explained that Takata will, over time, recall additional specific front airbag inflators manufactured with phase-stabilized ammonium nitrate (PSAN) propellant that does not contain a material called a “desiccant”. This expansion impacts Toyota and multiple other automotive manufacturers using specific Takata frontal airbag inflators.

    On May 16, 2016, Takata filed the first of multiple Defect Information Reports (DIRs) with NHTSA to address the first phase of this expansion.

    On May 23, 2016, Toyota filed a Defect Information Report (DIR) with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) identifying the vehicles involved in the first phase of the Takata recall and informing the agency of our intent to conduct a voluntary Safety Recall on the vehicles described below:

    • 2006 – 2011 Yaris Hatchback
    • 2007 – 2011 Yaris Sedan
    • 2008 – 2011 Scion xB
    • 2009 – 2011 Corolla
    • 2009 – 2011 Matrix
    • 2010 – 2011 4Runner
    • 2011 Sienna

    Condition:
    The subject vehicles are equipped with front passenger airbag inflators produced by Takata. According to Takata, the propellant in these inflators may degrade after prolonged exposure to high absolute humidity and fluctuating high temperatures. Degraded propellant can cause inflator rupture during airbag deployment. In the event of an inflator rupture, metal fragments could pass through the airbag cushion material, striking the vehicle occupants, and result in serious injury or death.

    Remedy:
    Toyota is currently preparing the remedy for this condition and will provide additional information as it becomes available. The remedy, when available, will consist of the replacement of the airbag inflator or the airbag assembly, depending on the vehicle model.

    Covered Vehicles:
    This Safety Recall covers the first phase of Zone A. There are approximately 998,500 Toyota and Scion vehicles in this Safety Recall, included in that are approximately 94,300 vehicles in Puerto Rico.
