    Toyota is issuing a recall covering 320,000 units, including the 2003-2006 Land Cruiser, 2004-2006 4Runner, 2005-2006 Tundra and Sequoia, 2003-2006 Lexus LX 470, and 2004-2006 GX 470. The affected models are equipped with curtain-shield airbags. Those models are also equipped with seatbelt pretensioners. A software programming error could cause the pretensioners to deploy inadvertently in some cases, increasing the likelihood of an injury to occupants. Owners of affected vehicles will be notified by first-class mail. Dealers will replace the control module with a new one with the correct software.

    Owners of Toyota models can call 800-331-4331, and owners of Lexus brand vehicles can call 800-255-3987. Recall information for both Toyota and Lexus models is available attoyota.com/recall. Enter your vehicle’s VIN number for full information. Owners can also visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recall sitesafercar.gov/vin.

    Toyota issued a recall in May 2015 for vehicles sold in high-humidity areas, in which the airbag inflators could be affected by the humidity and suddenly rupture. That recall included the RAV4, Tundra, and Sequoia. Toyota also recalled the 2007-2013 FJ Cruiser for the door-mounted seatbelt retractor. Toyota also had a number of models affected by the wide-ranging Takata airbag recall.
