Toyota recalls nearly 1 million vehicles due to potential defective airbag sensor

Oak Hill, WV (WOAY) – Toyota is recalling about one million vehicles over a potential problem with the passenger airbag. 

The recall covers 15 Toyota and Lexus models – including the Camry, Sienna, Rav-4, and the Lexus RX350 and ES350. 

The model years are between 2020 to 2022. 

Toyota says the occupant classification system sensor in the recalled vehicles could short circuit. 

Based on weight, the sensor helps identify whether the person sitting in the front passenger seat is an adult or a child. 

Toyota says that due to the possible glitch, the airbag may not deploy in certain kinds of crashes when it should. 

Toyota will notify owners of the recalled vehicles by the middle of February.
