Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing is recalling 3,121 model year 2020 Highlanders and Highlander hybrids.
Incorrect seat trim covers on one or both of the front seats can prevent the seat-mounted side airbag from deploying properly.
Improper deployment of the seat-mounted side airbag increases the risk of injury in the event of a crash.
What to do
Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the front seats and replace the seat trim covers -- as necessary -- free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin December 13, 2020.
Owners may contact Toyota customer service at (800) 442-8696. Toyota's number for this recall is 20TB14 / 20TA14.
