TORONTO, Ontario – July 12, 2023 – Toyota is conducting a safety recall involving certain 2023 model year Toyota Corolla, Corolla Cross, Highlander, Highlander Hybrid, and Tacoma vehicles in Canada. Approximately 4,252 vehicles are involved in this recall in Canada.
In the affected vehicles, the spiral cable assembly in the steering column may lose its electrical connection on the circuit controlling the driver’s airbag. If this occurs, the airbag warning light will illuminate, and the driver’s airbag may not deploy in a crash. As a result, the vehicle will not comply with certain federal motor vehicle safety requirements and may increase the risk of injury to the driver in the event of a crash.
For all involved vehicles, Toyota and Lexus dealers will inspect the serial number of the spiral cable and, if necessary, replace it with a new cable at no cost to customers.
Toyota will notify affected owners about this issue by early September 2023.
