Toyota Motor Sales, USA is recalling approximately 320,000 model year 2003-2006 Land Cruiser; 2004-2006 4Runner; 2005-2006 Tundra and Sequoia; 2003-2006 LX470; and 2004-2006 GX470 vehicles.
The recalled vehicles are equipped with side Curtain-Shield-Airbags (CSAs) which deploy from the roof in the event of certain types of crashes. Due to improper programming in the airbag control modules, there is a possibility that, under certain specific and limited conditions shortly after startup, the CSAs and seat belt pretensioners could activate when not necessary.
Unexpected activation of the CSAs could increase the risk of injury to the occupant.
All known owners of the recalled vehicles will be notified by first class mail.
Toyota and Lexus dealers will replace the airbag control module with one that has improved programming at no cost to owners.
Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-800-331-4331 or Lexus customer service at 1-800-255-3987.
