When a vehicle is recalled it's best to take care of the recall as soon as possible. Toyota announced yesterday that it is recalling thousands of Toyotas in the U.S. due to problems with the airbags not inflating.

According to the Toyota website:

Toyota Motor North America, Inc. today announced that it is conducting a safety recall in the U.S. of approximately 49,000 Model Year 2016 Prius and Lexus RX vehicles and Model Year 2015 – 2016 Lexus NX vehicles.

The involved vehicles have air bag systems where an open circuit could be created over time.  If this were to occur, the air bag warning light will illuminate and the side and curtain shield air bags and/or front air bags may not deploy.  Air bag non-deployment could increase the risk of injury to the occupants in the event of a crash.


The website goes on the say that owners will receive notification by mail starting in late March 2018.
