Toyota recalls 320000 cars with airbag issues – CNBC

Posted: Wednesday, February 03, 2016

Toyota is recalling 320,000 vehicles due to a safety issue.

Recalled vehicles are equipped with side-curtain shield air bags, which deploy from the roof in some crashes.

Due to improper programming of the air bag control modules, it is possible under certain conditions for the air bags and seat belt pretensioners to activate shortly after start-up when it is not necessary, the company said Tuesday. Unexpected activation of the air bags could injure occupants, Toyota said.
