2017 Toyota Camry for US

Toyota recalls Camry in US over airbag defect

In mid-December, Toyota Motor Sales USA announced that it was recalling some cars in two models including the Camry over a defect in their airbags. According to Toyota Motor Sales USA, there is a chance that incorrect parts were used for the installation of the lower portion of the instrument panel for the front seat knee airbags.

The company says that in a worst case scenario, the parts could loosen and cause the airbag to not deploy during an accident, which increases the risk of injury.

The recall applies to some 2017 Camry models and some 2016 Avalon models. Toyota Motor Sales USA is contacting effected drivers and carrying out replacements at dealerships.
