Toyota India to recall another batch of Corolla

Toyota India is in the process of recalling another batch of Corolla to fix the defective passenger side airbags. This is the third time the company is recalling its best-selling sedan in the past one year.

The Toyota Corollas manufactured between April 2007 and July 2008 is a part of this recall. The defective airbag may result in the airbag inflator getting deployed incorrectly and with excessive force, resulting in metal shrapnel hurtling towards the driver or passengers. These incidents were first reported in the US and around eight people have already been a victim of this.

Takata, the company that manufactures these airbags has issued a recall for more than ten million vehicles. There are few other car manufacturers like Nissan and Honda that have issued recalls for the defective airbag issue. While these recalls have incurred huge cost for the companies, the trust factor for some brands could prove to be a major problem.

"In line with the global recall by Toyota Motor Corp, TKM has announced a special service campaign for passenger-side airbag in the Corolla model which will be extended to Corolla models manufactured during April 2007 till June 2008," said the company in a statement.
