Lexus and Toyota recall vehicles due to possible defects in airbag systems

Posted by John Hadden | Feb 02, 2018 | 0 Comments

Toyota has announced a recall of approximately 49,000 vehicles sold under the Toyota and Lexus brands due to problems with the airbag system. As Consumer Reports and Toyota have reported, the problem appears to result from an "open circuit" condition that may prevent side, curtain shield, and front airbags from deploying in a crash. The problem is electrical and appears to be separate from other recalls involving defective inflators in airbags manufactured by Takata. The affected vehicles are:

  • 2016 Prius and Lexus RX vehicles
  • 2015 and 2016 Lexis NX vehicles

It is not clear whether all such vehicles are affected. Customers can check the NTSB web site recall page to enter their VIN and determine if this, or other, recalls apply to their vehicles.

"Working with John was my first experience with the legal system. John explained everything thoroughly to me and helped me weigh the pros and cons of each potential decision. He was readily available whenever I had a question or a concern about my case. I would highly recommend John to anyone in need of legal representation. He is professional yet still very down to earth.”
