Toyota Prius: Front Passenger Air Bag
Wed, 14 September 2016
Following the announcement made by Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC) in Japan on 14 September 2016, Borneo Motors Singapore (BMS) has been notified that the safety-related vehicle recall on Front Passenger Air Bag may involve select Toyota Prius model.
This is a proactive measure Toyota is taking to ensure the continued safety of our Toyota customers.
The involved vehicles are equipped with a front passenger air bag which contains stored, compressed gas in the inflator. A component in the air bag assembly may have been improperly welded and/or misassembled. If this occurs, the stored gas may escape without a deployment signal and result in the partial inflation of the air bag. This has been observed when the vehicle is parked and unoccupied for a period of time. An airbag that inflates in this manner can, under some circumstances, increase the risk of injury and the possibility of a crash.
Under this recall, BMS will inspect and replace, if necessary, the air bag assembly. The remedy will be performed at no cost to vehicle owners.
At the moment, we are still pending further clarifications on the involved Toyota Prius model distributed and sold by BMS.
