TORONTO, Ontario – Tuesday, April 13, 2021– Toyota is conducting a safety recall involving certain 2009-2016 Model Year Toyota Venza vehicles in Canada. Approximately 79,850 vehicles are involved in this recall.

The subject vehicles have a sensor in the driver-side front door that is connected to the airbag system control unit by electrical wires. One of these wires can fracture over time. If this occurs, the airbag warning lamp could illuminate and the sensor in the door could become inoperable. This may prevent the driver-side side airbag and curtain shield airbag from deploying in certain types of collisions, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash where those airbags are needed.

For all involved vehicles, Toyota dealers will inspect the driver-side front door wire harness and replace it with an improved one, if necessary.

Owners of involved vehicles will be notified by the middle of June 2021.

Information about automotive recalls, including but not limited to the list of involved vehicles, is subject to change over time.  For the most up-to-date Safety Recall information on Toyota vehicles, customers should check their vehicle’s status by visiting Toyota.ca/recall and entering their Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).
