Thousands of Toyota Highlander and Highlander hybrids recalled

Posted on Thursday, June 12th, 2014 at 10:34 am    

At least 50,000 of the newest model of Toyota Highlander and its hybrid version are being recalled by the automaker due to a software issue in the air bag control unit, Auto World News reported on June 4.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) stated that bigger passengers occupying the front seat are at higher risk of suffering from injuries in a car crash if the airbag software failed to identify the passenger’s weight. The automaker stated that they already notified their dealers to temporarily avoid selling the affected vehicles until they fixed them. Toyota will address the problem by updating the faulty airbag software at no cost.
