Toyota Motor Corporation and UMW Toyota Motor are recalling around 18,700 units of 2000-2003 made Toyota Corolla Altis and Toyota Camry. This is to rectify the issue of a defective passenger side front airbag inflator which may cause abnormal deployment or rupture during a crash.
There is no reported case of such problem in Malaysia yet, but UMW Toyota Motor will carry out corrective action at no cost on the owners. However, the timing for this recall is rarely seen, as cars of this age will be hitting the used car market, and airbag is said to expire around 10 years.
Please share this news around to your friends and family. Both models are very popular a decade ago and I'm sure it can be easily found in someone's parking garage.
