Toyota is conducting a safety recall involving certain Scion vehicles

November 01, 2018
PLANO, Texas, November 1, 2018 – Toyota is conducting a safety recall involving certain 2004 –2006 Scion xA vehicles in the United States. Approximately 17,000 vehicles are involved in this recall. 

The airbag system in the subject vehicles could experience electrical shorting that could damage the circuits in the system. This could cause the airbag warning lights to illuminate and the airbag(s) and seatbelt pretensioner(s) to become deactivated; or it could cause those systems to inadvertently deploy. These conditions can increase the risk of injury or crash.

For all involved vehicles, Toyota dealers will replace the airbag control unit with an improved one at no cost to customers. Owners of all involved vehicles will receive direct notification by first class mail starting in late December.

Information about automotive recalls, including but not limited to the list of involved vehicles, is subject to change over time.  For the most up-to-date Safety Recall information on Toyota, Lexus or Scion vehicles, customers should check their vehicle’s status by visiting and entering their Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) or license plate information. Safety Recall inquiry by individual VIN is also available at the NHTSA site:
For any additional questions, customer support is also available by calling the Toyota Customer Experience Center at 1.800.331.4331 or the Lexus Guest Experience Center at 1.800.255.3987.
