Toyota Issues Recall Of 2016 Camry And Avalon Models

Toyota has issued a recall of 58,510 cars from the 2016 model year. The affected vehicles include approximately 16,880 Avalon and 41,630 Camry sedans.

The cause of the recall is an incorrectly calibrated Occupant Classification System (OCS) in the passenger’s side front seat. This system is responsible for activating and deactivating the passenger’s side airbag based on the wight of the person in the seat. Improper calibration of the OCS could cause the passenger knee airbag to not deploy in the event of a crash, which increases the risk of injury.

Recalibration of the OCS in affected vehicles will be done by Toyota dealers at no cost to the vehicle’s owner. Those who own Camry or Avalon models affected by the recall will be notified by Toyota via first class mail.
