Recalled Product Description: Toyota Corolla and Toyota Matrix Airbags
Front passenger airbags installed in certain 2003 through 2008 model-year Corolla cars and 2005 through 2008 model-year Matrix cars as replacements for the recalled Takata airbags.
Why the Airbags Were Recalled
Toyota says that the airbags which were installed to replace the faulty Takata airbags may not unfold as designed under high temperatures, increasing the risk of injury in a crash.
How to Tell If Your Airbag Was Recalled
If you have a Toyota Corolla or a Toyota Matrix that was part of the Takata airbag recall and you had the airbag replaced, you might have a damaged airbag that is part of the recall.
