Toyota Tacoma Recall

On March 7, 2012, Toyota Motor North America, Inc., in conjunction with NHTSA, issued a product recall involving its TOYOTA / TACOMA vehicles manufactured from 2005-2009. The applicable NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number is 12V092000.

This recall relates directly to a product defect in the vehicle's front air bags affecting approximately 495,470 such units.

The Toyota Motor North America, Inc., summary follows below:

TOYOTA IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2005-2009 TACOMA VEHICLES, MANUFACTURED FROM SEPTEMBER 14, 2004, THROUGH AUGUST 29, 2008. OVER TIME, STEERING WHEEL VIBRATION MAY DAMAGE THE SPIRAL CABLE ASSEMBLY (CLOCKSPRING) THAT POWERS THE DRIVER'S AIR BAG MODULE. IF DAMAGE OCCURS, THE AIR BAG WARNING LAMP WILL ILLUMINATE AND THE AIR BAG MAY BECOME DEACTIVATED.

Consequence:

IN THE EVENT OF A CRASH, THE DRIVER'S SIDE AIR BAG MAY NOT DEPLOY, INCREASING THE RISK OF PERSONAL INJURY.
