These vehicles are equipped with breakaway pins in the steering column that could have been damaged during production, potentially affecting the performance of the driver’s air bag in the event of a crash.

“In the event of a crash, an air bag that does not deploy as designed can increase the risk of injury,” NHTSA said.

This problem makes the recalled vehicles fail to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 208, “Occupant Crash Protection.”

Toyota is notifying owners and dealers will replace the steering column, free of charge.

This recall began on January 18, 2021.
