Toyota Recalling Camry, Avalon and Venza Vehicles

October 20, 2013

Toyota Motor Sales U.S.A. Inc. said it will conduct a voluntary safety recall of approximately 803,000 2012-2013 model-year Camry, Camry Hybrid, Avalon, Avalon Hybrid and Venza vehicles to fix a problem with the air conditioning condenser unit housing that could affect the airbags.

In the involved vehicles, water from the air conditioning condenser unit housing could leak onto the airbag control module and cause a short circuit, resulting in illumination of the airbag warning light. In some instances, the airbags could become disabled or could inadvertently deploy, Toyota said. In limited instances, the power steering assist function could also become inoperable if a communication line in the airbag control module is damaged.

To remedy these issues, Toyota dealers will apply sealant and install a cover to the air conditioning condenser unit housing seam, located above the airbag control module.

Toyota dealers will make the necessary repairs.

More information about the recall is available at Owners can also reach the Toyota Customer Experience Center at 1-800-331-4331.
