Toyota ‘recalled’ 370,000 Venza due to faulty airbags

Jakarta (medialnews) – Japanese automaker Toyota has announced a global recall campaign against crossing Venza because of an airbag problem.

Documents filed with the US Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there are more than 370,000 Venza vehicles worldwide subject to recall.

Quoted from CarsCoops on Monday, the car that was affected was the 2009-2015 Venza production. In this case, if accumulated, there are up to 373,000 vehicles and 279,040 of them are in the United States.

Toyota claims that the Venza model in question has an airbag sensor located at the driver’s front door. This sensor is connected to the ECU’s Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) via a pair of cables which are connected through the door to the vehicle body via grommets.

According to the automaker, there is a greater difference between the length of the cable and the length of the grommet of the affected vehicle, which results in a tighter bend radius for the wire harness and can cause the cable to break with time.

If this happens, the SRS warning light will sound and the airbag sensor on the driver’s side front door will no longer work.

Affected Venza models were manufactured between May 13, 2008 and July 8, 2015. Toyota estimates that approximately 0.5% of vehicles may have airbag problems.
