Issue in CARVX.JP report - recall / airbag?


Recommended Posts

I was looking at one CarVX.jp report and under recall it says as below. I'm trying to make sense of it and understand its seriousness - any help will be appreciated.

 

"In the inflator (inflation device) of the passenger airbag, the prevention of moisture absorption of the gas generating agent is inappropriate, so that the gas generating agent may deteriorate due to repeated changes in temperature and humidity. For this reason, the inflator container may be damaged when the airbag is deployed."

Is this fairly common thing? Can anything be done in UK to address this? Toyota uk won't do anything by default?

 

IF a members vehicle is subject to a recall that has not been carried out Toyota UK will send a notification / request to Toyota Japan.

 

If Toyota Japan verify the claim Toyota Japan will fund Toyota UK to do the work.

 

I have read the approval process can take quite a while !

 

Toyota UK can also check through official Toyota channels whether there are any outstanding recalls.
