Airbag recall for the new corolla

Recommended Posts

Have just read an article about a recall on the toyota corolla but cant work out if it's just the USA market or EU countries as well.

Here is the article if you haven't seen it

https://news.sky.com/story/toyota-and-honda-recall-six-million-vehicles-due-to-airbag-glitches-11914698

I have done a check here and my uk vehicle isn't listed so must be usa only

The article does state that it is North and South America:

"Toyota is recalling around 3.4 million vehicles across North and South America because their airbags may not inflate in a collision, with the defect linked to a report of one fatal crash. 

The recall includes 2.9 million US vehicles and covers certain 2011 to 2019 Corollas, 2011 to 2013 Matrix, 2012 to 2018 Avalon and 2013-2018 Avalon Hybrid models."

Could well be that those Toyotas and Hondas, and possibly the other makes mentioned but not in the open yet, could have been manufactured in the Americas and certain parts sourced from different sources to vehicles manufactured in other parts of the world. Auris/Corolla for the UK market built in Burnaston, Derbyshire.

The last line of the article: " No European models are affected by either announcement:".
