2015 Toyota Yaris

Toyota is recalling about 61,000 vehicles in two separate recalls to address problems with non-deployment or inadvertent deployment of front, side and air-curtain airbags.

2015 Toyota Yaris

The first recall involves 2015-17 Toyota Yaris hatchbacks that might have corroded front door wiring harnesses that connect side airbag sensors to the airbag control unit. Over time, the corrosion in the harnesses might cause airbag warning lights to illuminate and front side-impact and side air-curtain airbags to be deactivated or not deploy as they are meant to.

The recall affects 60,546 cars, 17,546 of which are in Canada. Known owners of vehicles will be notified by mail, asking them to return to Toyota dealers for replacement of the front-door wire harnesses in one or both front doors, as necessary, with new units.

2018 Toyota Sienna

The second recall affects 2019 Sienna minivans, involving an improperly welded component that could affect one of the airbag sensors, which might lead to non- or inadvertent-deployment of the passenger front side-impact and side curtain-shield airbags.

The recall affects 366 minivans, 96 of which are in Canada. Owners will be notified by mail to bring their vehicles to a Toyota dealer, who will replace the passenger-side front-door sub-assembly, as necessary.
