Toyota is recalling 5,070 2016 model-year Lexus RX 350 and RX 450h SUVs because the driver’s knee air bag may not deploy properly during a crash, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The recalled vehicles were manufactured from Nov. 16 to Dec. 23 in 2015. Because of an improper weld, the gas needed to inflate the driver’s knee air bag may escape from the inflator, NHTSA said.

Toyota dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the knee air bag assembly. There will be no charge for this service.

The recall is expected to begin March 27. Vehicle owners can reach Toyota customer service at (800) 331-4331. Toyota’s ID for this recall is GLA.
