Toyota is recalling about 43,000 model year 2015-2017 Yaris Liftbacks & Hatchbacks in the U.S.
The vehicles have side airbag sensors installed in each of the front doors and wire harnesses that connect these sensors to the airbag control unit. The harnesses could corrode over time, which could cause the airbag warning light to come on.
In addition, the front seat side airbags and curtain shield airbags could be deactivated or not deploy properly, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash.
What to do
Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will replace the wire harnesses in one or both doors, as necessary at no cost to customers.
The recall is expected to begin in mid-June.
Owners may contact Toyota (800) 331-4331.
