On December 13, 2019, Toyota amended the Defect Information Report (DIR) sent to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) informing the agency of our intent to include certain additional 2003 – 2008 Corolla vehicles and certain 2005 – 2008 Matrix vehicles in the Safety Recall.

 

On August 28, 2019, Toyota filed a Defect Information Report (DIR) with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) informing the agency of our intent to conduct a voluntary Safety Recall on certain 2003 – 2008 Corolla vehicles and certain 2005 – 2008 Matrix vehicles.

 

Condition

The subject vehicles were repaired under a prior recall by replacing the front passenger airbag assembly or airbag inflator.  If this airbag deploys, there is a possibility that the passenger airbag could be damaged.  Such damage could cause the airbag to not properly inflate, and this could increase the risk of occupant injury in the event of a crash.

 

Remedy

Toyota has sufficient parts to implement the final phase of the remedy. The remedy will consist of replacement of the front passenger airbag assembly or replacement of the front passenger airbag sub-assembly FREE OF CHARGE. Refer to the table below to determine the remedy status of vehicles involved in K0Q (K1Q Interim).

 

Model Name Model Year K0Q Remedy Status
Matrix 2005 – 2008 Remedy Available
Corolla 2003 – 2004 Remedy Available

Covered Vehicles

There are approximately 144,900 vehicles covered by this Safety Recall. Approximately 4,400 vehicles involved in this Safety Recall were distributed to Puerto Rico.

NOTE: Toyota added approximately 10,200 vehicles to this campaign. These vehicles will be included in the campaign effective 12/16/2019 and will utilize the same repair described above.

 

Campaign Phase Interpretation

Campaigns may be launched in phases due to many factors, such as: the nature of the repair, parts availability, etc. It is critical that each VIN is confirmed using TIS to determine if the vehicle is in the remedy or interim phase. Only perform the repair that is available for the specific VIN. If a remedy repair is performed on an

interim phase vehicle, the claim will be subject to debit.

 

REMEDY PHASE – ELIGIBLE FOR REPAIR

Certain models repaired under earlier recalls with a non-Takata inflator are under recall and will be repaired with an improved airbag assembly or airbag subassembly.

 

Owner Letter Mailing Date

Toyota notified Corolla vehicle owners in mid-October 2019. Matrix vehicle owners were sent an interim notification in late October 2019. Matrix vehicle owners will be notified of the remedy beginning in early June 2020.

Toyota makes significant effort to obtain current customer name and address information from each state through industry resources when mailing owner letters. In the event your dealership receives a notice for a vehicle that was sold prior to the Safety Recall announcement, it is the dealership’s responsibility to forward the owner letter to the customer who purchased the vehicle.

Please note that only owners of the covered vehicles will be notified. If you are contacted by an owner who has not yet received a notification, please verify eligibility by confirming through TIS prior to performing repairs. Dealers should perform the repair as outlined in the Technical Instructions found on TIS.

For the vehicles added in December 2019, Toyota sent an owner notification by mid-February 2020.

 

Dealer Inventory Procedures

New Vehicles in Dealership Inventory – Reminder

Toyota has not identified any new vehicles in dealership inventory that are covered by this Safety Recall. However, below is a reminder of the dealer’s obligations pertaining to Safety Recalls if there are new vehicles in dealership inventory:

Under Title 49, Section 30112 of the United States Code, a dealer cannot sell, offer for sale, or introduce or deliver for introduction in interstate commerce a new motor vehicle when it is aware that the vehicle does not comply with an applicable Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard or contains a defect related to motor vehicle safety.  Further, 49 Code of Federal Regulations §577.13 requires us to provide the following advisory:  It is a violation of Federal law for a dealer to deliver a new motor vehicle or any new or used item of motor vehicle equipment (including a tire) covered by this notification under a sale or lease until the defect or noncompliance is remedied.

Vehicle Safety Recall completion should always be verified through TIS. We request your assistance to ensure involved vehicles are identified and not delivered prior to performing the remedy.

NOTE: Dealers can identify if any of their new and used inventory has any open campaigns in the Vehicle Inventory Summary available in Dealer Daily (https://dealerdaily.toyota.com/). The Vehicle Inventory Summary may take up to 4 hours to populate information for newly launched campaigns.

 

Pre-Owned Vehicles in Dealer Inventory for Vehicles in Remedy

To ensure customer satisfaction, Toyota requests that dealers complete this Safety Recall on any used vehicles currently in dealer inventory that are covered by this Safety Recall prior to customer delivery. However, if the campaign cannot be completed (for example, due to remedy parts availability), delivery of a covered vehicle is acceptable if disclosed to the customer that the vehicle is involved in a Safety Recall.

Toyota expects dealers to use the attached Customer Contact and Vehicle Disclosure Form to obtain vehicle buyer information. Dealers are expected to provide a copy of the completed form, along with the most current FAQ, to the vehicle buyer. Toyota and the dealer may use this information to contact the customer when the remedy becomes available.

Keep the completed form on file at the dealership and send a copy to quality_compliance@toyota.com. In the subject line of the email state, “Disclosure Form K0Q/K1Q” and include the VIN.

NOTE: Dealers can identify if any of their new and used inventory has any open campaigns in the Vehicle Inventory Summary available in Dealer Daily (https://dealerdaily.toyota.com/). The Vehicle Inventory Summary may take up to 4 hours to populate information for newly launched campaigns.

           

Toyota Certified Used Vehicle (TCUV)

The TCUV policy prohibits the certification of any vehicle with an outstanding Safety Recall, Special Service Campaign, or Limited Service Campaign. Thus, no affected units are to be designated, sold, or delivered as a TCUV until all applicable Safety Recalls, Special Service Campaigns, and Limited Service Campaigns have been completed on that vehicle.

 

Toyota Rent-A-Car (TRAC) & Service Loaners

Toyota requests that dealers remove all TRAC and Service Loaner vehicles from service that are covered by a Safety Recall unless the defect has been remedied.

  1. Percentage of Vehicles Estimated to Actually Contain the Defect:

Unknown.  Toyota is unable to provide an estimate of the percentage of vehicles to actually contain the defect.  Whether the issue in each case will lead to damage of the air bag or bag plate in the air bag assembly during the deployment of air bag, creating an unreasonable risk to safety, depends on variation of the installation condition of the folded air bag and each vehicle’s operating environment.

 

  1. Description of Problem:

The subject vehicles are equipped with a front passenger air bag assembly containing an inflator, manufactured by an alternative supplier, installed as a replacement under a prior recall.  There is a possibility that the air bag may not unfold as designed during inflation under high temperature conditions, resulting in air bag internal pressure rising differently than expected.  Under such conditions, a portion of the air bag material could be torn during deployment, or the bag plate (which mounts the air bag to the air bag assembly case) could be damaged.   In either instance, such damage during deployment could cause the air bag not to properly inflate, and this could increase the risk of occupant injury in the event of a crash.

 

  1. Chronology of Principal Events:

January 2019 – March 2019

The supplier of the air bag assembly conducted quality confirmation testing of the subject front passenger air bag assembly which was newly adopted as a service part.  This air bag assembly is of the same design as a remedy part used for previous Takata recalls, but the newly adopted service part was produced at a different assembly facility.  During some of the tests, a tear of the air bag fabric or separation of bolts from the bag plate occurred.  Toyota was notified by the supplier and requested them to initiate an investigation, including confirming the details of the initial test parts and testing conditions.  The supplier conducted deployment tests on additional service parts and confirmed similar failures on some of the assemblies.

 

April 2019 – Mid-August 2019

Because the observed damage condition did not occur during the development testing of the recall remedy air bag assembly produced at a different facility than the new service part, Toyota collected in-stock completed air bag assemblies for the recall remedy and investigated to see if there were any differences between the recall remedy part and the newly adopted service part.  No air bag folding differences or concerns were identified, but variation of the installed angle (tilt) of the folded air bag was observed.  The supplier conducted replication testing with air bag assemblies containing the alternative inflator and the folded air bag installed with a large angle (tilt).  In this condition, air bag tear or bag plate bolt separation occurred.

Based on the supplier’s investigation of the air bag folding and assembly processes, variation of the installed angle (tilt) of the folded air bag could occur on both the recall remedy part and the new service part; therefore, the supplier initiated an investigation of the output pressure of the inflator.  It was found that the output pressure of the alternative inflator, when tested at high temperature, was different than the original Takata inflator at a point immediately after the ignition.  The supplier began investigating the possible cause of the difference in output pressure between the alternative inflator and the original Takata inflator.  It was found that the setup of the second stage ignition timing during the development testing of the alternative inflator was different from design specification of the ignition timing for an actual vehicle.  For a vehicle, first and second stages are ignited simultaneously, but in development testing the second stage was ignited with a certain delay.

In parallel, to investigate the mechanism of the damage, testing was done using air bag assemblies containing a folded air bag installed with a large tilt angle, and simultaneously igniting the first and second stages of the alternative inflator.  In this testing, it was found that the protector cloth, which holds the folded air bag in place prior to assembly installation to the vehicle, could be pinched between the assembly case and the air bag fabric, at a point immediately after the ignition, causing the air bag unfolding to be delayed and potentially resulting in air bag internal pressure rising differently than expected.  Under such conditions, a portion of the air bag material could be torn during deployment, or the bag plate (which mounts the air bag to the air bag assembly case) could be damaged.  In either instance, such damage during deployment could cause the air bag not to properly inflate, and this could increase the risk of occupant injury in the event of a crash.

 

August 22, 2019

Based on the results of the above investigation, Toyota decided to conduct a voluntary safety recall campaign.

As of August 20, 2019, based on a diligent review of records, Toyota’s best engineering judgment is that there are no Toyota Field Technical Reports or warranty claims that have been received from U.S. sources that relate to this condition and which were considered in the decision to submit this report.

 

  1. Description of Corrective Repair Action:

All known owners of the affected Toyota vehicles will be notified by first class mail to return their vehicles to a Toyota dealer.  Dealers will replace the front passenger air bag assembly with an improved one.

General Motors will notify NHTSA separately of its repair and notification schedule and its campaign number concerning the Pontiac Vibe.

 

Reimbursement Plan for pre-notification remedies

The owner letter will instruct vehicle owners who have paid to have this condition remedied prior to this campaign to seek reimbursement pursuant to Toyota’s General Reimbursement Plan.

 

Reimbursement Plan for pre-notification remedies for General Motors Vehicles (Pontiac Vibe)

Pursuant to 49 C.F.R. § 577.11, GM will reimburse owners for repairs according to the plan submitted on May 17, 2019

 

  1. Recall Schedule:

Notifications to owners of the affected vehicles will occur by the end of October, 2019.  A copy of the draft owner notification letter will be submitted as soon as available.

 

  1. Distributor/Dealer Notification Schedule:

Notifications to distributors/dealers were sent on August 28, 2019.  Copies of dealer communications will be submitted as they are issued.
