Toyota Recall 2013 Issued

Why Toyota Motor U.S. recalls so many cars at one time? The basic reason behind this recall is the airbag control module defects. Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc., has issued a recall statement for both Camry, Avalon and their Hybrid models of year 2012-2013 along with Venza cars. 

Toyota Motor U.S. said that the company "will conduct a voluntary safety recall of approximately 803,000 Model Year 2012-2013 Camry, Camry Hybrid, Avalon, Avalon Hybrid, and Venza vehicles due to a problem with the air conditioning condenser unit housing," in its recall statement on October 17th. 

Basically the condenser unit of the car air conditioner is having a defect due to which water can leak onto airbag control module. This leakage of water can cause a short circuit. In some cases, "the air bag(s) could become disabled or could inadvertently deploy or the power steering assist function could also become inoperable," according to recall statement. 

However, with this recall, Toyota will resolve this issue. Giant car maker firm will "install a cover to the air conditioning condenser unit housing seam located above the airbag control module" to correct the defect. The car owners will get a notification mail from the company to return back the vehicle for repairing purpose. You can also get more information here .
