According to Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC), these cars were manufactured between July 14, 2008 and December 31, 2009.

TMC said the reason for its recall is that the inflators of front airbags supplied by Takata might be made improperly, allowing moisture to intrude over time.

Improperly manufactured propellant wafers could cause the inflator to rupture and the front passenger airbag to deploy abnormally in a crash and may seriously injure passengers.

TMV will check and replace affected airbag inflators free of charge at Toyota garages nationwide. Airbags of other suppliers are not affected.

Checking and replacing the inflator module will take about half an hour to three hours depending on each model.
For Corolla cars which were not officially imported by TMV, the company will contact TMC to confirm information if it receives requests to check airbag inflators from customers. Once TMV gets official approval from TMC, it will replace defective airbag inflator modules at no charge.

TMW had earlier recalled thousands of imported Corolla and Yaris cars and domestically manufactured Vios cars for the same reason, taking the total number of Toyota cars involved in the program to more than 30,000 units.
