The reason is the airbags.
Toyota Motor LLC (the official representative of Toyota in the Russian market) announced a recall campaign in Russia. She started on February 28th.
A total of 22,712 Avensis vehicles sold between April 2003 and May 2007 are subject to recall.
According to Rosstandart, the driver’s airbags became the reason for the recall, in which the density of the substance of the squib cartridge may decrease over time due to exposure to high ambient temperatures and humidity on the gas generator.
*This material was created by a person who has the status of a foreign agent in the Russian Federation.
“In such a situation, the degradation of the substance of the squib is possible. Deployment of an airbag in an accident with a degraded substance can lead to the destruction of the gas generator housing and, in the worst case, the penetration of fragments of the gas generator through the airbag into the vehicle interior, which, in turn, can cause serious injury to the driver and passengers of the car, ”the website explains. Rosstandart.
All work for owners of recalled vehicles will be carried out free of charge.
