If you own any of these Toyota models, get your airbag checked

Toyota airbag recall Zimbabwe

If you own a Toyota Hilux, Fortuner, Corolla, Avensis or Yaris that was manufactured between 2005 to 2016 then you need to contact a Toyota Zimbabwe dealership for an airbag assessment.

The issue with the airbags (made by Takata) involves faulty inflators and propellant devices that may not deploy correctly in the event of a crash. What has been reported to happen is the airbag shoots metal fragments into the vehicle and by extension its occupants.

Toyota has been actively calling on its customers to come to dealerships to get an airbag replacement including the Japanese automotive giant’s Zimbabwe office.

The easiest way to get in touch with Toyota Zimbabwe is to send them a WhatsApp message on +263778562979, alternatively, you can email info@toyota.co.zw. In either case, you’ll need to provide your full name and chassis number.

And for anyone wondering this recall covers all vehicles, be they bought in Zimbabwe or those imported.

    Oh god, are the spammers back?🤦🏿‍♂️
    Anyway, it’s really cool that Toyota is honouring the recall locally. I just hope no-one suffered the worst possible outcomes in the interim.

    So basically these cars will shoot shrapnel into the car if involved in an accident?

    People were carrying hand grenades in the wheel of their car without knowing.🤔
