SHAH ALAM, 13 May – Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC) is expanding its special service campaign to certain Toyota Models to address the issue of the possibility of the improperly manufactured front side passenger and driver front airbag inflators that could cause rupture and the airbag to deploy abnormally in a crash.

TMC has undertaken a special service campaign to replace airbag inflator module for the Front Side Passenger Airbags as well as Driver Front Airbags in the interest if ensuring customers’ confidence and peace of mind.

UMW Toyota Motor has received confirmation from TMC that there are approximately 97,000 units of Toyota Camry, Toyota Corolla Altis, Toyota Vios, Toyota Yaris and Toyota RAV4 manufactured from year 2001 – 2007 which are involved in this Special Service Campaign in Malaysia.

UMW Toyota Motor will contact all affected customers for the special service campaign to carry out the necessary corrective measures and if it is equipped with an affected inflator, the inflator will be replace with a newly manufactured one at no charge to the owner.

No other Toyota and Lexus models sold by UMW Toyota Motor produced before year 2001 and after year 2007 are affected by this campaign.
