TORRANCE, California – Toyota Motor Sales U.S.A. is recalling approximately 310 2016 Toyota Tacoma pickup trucks to fix a problem with the driver’s knee airbag, the automaker said on Tuesday.
Incorrect attachment bolts may have been installed.
“This could result in the bolts loosening over time,” Toyota said in a statement. “A loosened bolt could affect the performance of the knee airbag, increasing the risk of injury during a crash.”
No injuries or accidents have been linked to the recall, Toyota spokeswoman Cindy Knight told Edmunds.
Toyota dealers will replace the bolts with bolts of the correct specification. The recall is expected to begin in December. Owners can contact Toyota customer service at 1-800-331-4331.
No information about the recall has been posted on the website of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which oversees vehicle safety in the U.S.
Edmunds says: This recall does not begin for several weeks. If you own one of these trucks and have an immediate concern, it’s best to contact your dealer now.
