Recall Alert: 2003-2004 Toyota Avalon

2003ToyotaAvalon

Vehicles Affected: About 119,000 model-year 2003-2004 Toyota Avalon sedans.

The Problem: Certain circuits within the airbag control module may be susceptible to damage if exposed to electrical noise from other electrical components. In some instances, front airbags or seat belt pretensioners could inadvertently deploy. This is an expansion of an earlier recall.

The Fix: Toyota will notify owners by mail and dealers will add an electrical noise filter to the airbag control module for free. The automaker did not specify a timeframe.

What Owners Should Do: Owners can call Toyota at 800-331-4331 or go to www.toyota.com/recall for more info.

I had one of these. One of the last great Toyotas. The model after this was garbage.

By law how long can any carmaker delay before
Specifying a timeframe for a required recall?
