Toyota Recalls 12 Avalon and Camry Vehicles
December 13, 2016
PLANO, Texas (December 13, 2016) – Toyota Motor North America, Inc., announced that it is conducting a safety recall of four Model Year 2016 Toyota Avalon and eight Model Year 2017 Toyota Camry vehicles in the U.S.
During vehicle assembly, it is possible that incorrect fasteners were used to install the front passenger knee airbag assembly. This could affect its performance, increasing the risk of injury in a crash.
Toyota dealers will inspect the vehicles to determine if incorrect fasteners were used. If incorrect fasteners are found, proper bolts will be installed and the mounting brackets will be replaced at no cost to customers. All known owners of the involved vehicles will be contacted in December to schedule a repair appointment.
