AutoBeta( Report--

On December 20, local time, Toyota announced a recall of 1.12 million vehicles in Canada and the United States because of potential quality problems with the recalled vehicle airbags and a possible short circuit in the sensors of the front passenger seats due to manufacturing problems. as a result, the airbag system cannot determine the correct weight of the occupants, and there is a risk that it will not be opened in a collision.

It is understood that the recall includes Toyota and Lexus vehicles aged from 2020 to 2022, including Asian Avalon, Camry, Corolla, RAV4, Highlander and Sienna hybrid vehicles, as well as Lexus ES250, ES300H, ES350 and RX350 models. Of the 1.12 million vehicles recalled, 1 million were from the US market, that is to say. The United States is the main market for the recall.

Toyota said it plans to notify owners of the recall from February 2024, when dealers will check and replace the sensors if necessary.

It is worth mentioning that on Nov. 22, Toyota recalled more than 580000 cars in the Japanese market because the pedals of the pedal handbrake were not installed securely. It is understood that this hidden danger may cause vehicles not to be able to use the handbrake function normally, and the waterproof performance of the windshield frame of some vehicles is insufficient. Rain Water's infiltration may cause electrical components short circuit and electric doors accidentally opened during driving and other problems, but also because of this fault, Toyota received 36 fault reports, but fortunately this failure did not cause an accident.

In addition to Toyota, Honda, another Japanese manufacturer, has also launched a recall in the North American market. Foreign media reported that a total of 106030 CR-V hybrid models made by Honda in the North American market were recalled between 2019 and 2022 due to design problems with 12V battery cables and possible fire caused by short circuits.

According to reports, the 12V battery cable is arranged outside the body frame and is not fused. Normal driving is not affected, but if the vehicle has an accident or the left front fender is damaged, it may cause a short circuit.

According to media reports, this happened to car owners in May 2021, but Honda's subsequent investigation found that it was a low-probability event and attributed it to an "extreme collision angle".

This is Honda's second recall this month. Honda issued four car recalls in a row on Dec. 8, including one involving more than 1.13 million large-scale recalls that attracted industry attention. Honda officially announced that it will recall 1138046 vehicles in the Japanese market because the resin density in the low-pressure fuel pump impeller (resin impeller) of the recalled vehicle may be low and may be deformed, eventually the impeller may come into contact with the pump cover, causing the engine to suddenly stall while driving. A total of more than 1.13 million vehicles were recalled in 25 models, including N-BOX, Feido and STEP WGN, as well as 204 NSX sports cars exported to Japan by US subsidiaries, which were manufactured between June 2017 and September 2020.
