Over 800k Toyota vehicles with airbag issues recalled

Over half of a million 2012-2013 Toyota vehicles in the U.S. are being recalled due to a leaking condenser in the air conditioning unit, which may cause the airbag to malfunction, according to a report from the company published on Thursday, October 17.

The recall affects 803,000 models of the 2012-2013 Camry, Avalon, Camry hybrid, Avalon Hybrid, and the mid-sized Venza SUVs, all of which may have a leak in the A/C condenser that could affect the normal function of the airbag. Toyota said that a short circuit in the airbag system may result from the leaking condenser, leading to either an accidentally deploy of the airbag or the airbag to become disabled.

There have already been reports of the airbags launching unintentionally, causing a few injuries. To fix the airbag issue, dealers will be sealing the leaking condenser and mount a cover to further protect the airbag control unit.
