TORONTO, Ontario – December 20, 2023 – Toyota is conducting a safety recall involving certain 2020 - 2022 model year Toyota and Lexus vehicles. Approximately 99,965 vehicles are involved in this recall in Canada.

The subject vehicles have Occupant Classification System (OCS) sensors in the front passenger seat that could have been improperly manufactured, causing a short circuit. This would not allow the airbag system to properly classify the occupant’s weight, and the airbag may not deploy as designed in certain crashes, increasing the risk of injury.

For all involved vehicles, Toyota and Lexus dealers will inspect the OCS sensors, and, if necessary, replace them at no cost to owners.

Toyota will notify affected owners about this issue by the middle of February 2024.
