58,000 Toyota Camry and Avalon Recalled

Posted by: Xavier Kwan onApril 14th, 2016


Toyota will be issuing a recall on 58,510 vehicles which impact both the Camry and Avalon with a model year of 2016. The issue has been identified as an incorrectly calibrated Occupant Classification System in the passenger’s side front seat. The OCS monitors the weight of the passenger and determines whether or not to turn on the air bags. With the calibration of the OCS compromised, the airbag might not go off during an accident due to inaccurate readings of the passenger’s weight.

The recall will require dealerships to recalibrate the OCS free of charge to the vehicle owners. We encourage all owners to contact their local dealership for more information.
