Earlier, TMV said it would recall more than 20,000 Vios and Yaris sedans to check and replace the airbag inflator module of the front passenger airbag.

The recall programme covers 18,138 locally-assembled Vios cars produced between January 5, 2009 and December 29, 2012, and 1,877 imported Yaris cars produced from September 1, 2009 to August 31, 2012.

The Toyota Viet Nam dealership network nationwide will offer free checks and replacements for all relevant airbag inflator modules on Toyota Vios cars produced and assembled domestically and those imported.

The programme will last from now until August 21 next year. Total time for checking and replacement is estimated at around 2 hours per vehicle.

For Yaris models which were not imported and officially distributed by TMV, if the request is received from customers, TMV will contact the global Recall Programme of Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC) to confirm information.

Once getting official approval from TMC, Toyota Viet Nam will check and replace the airbag inflator module of the front passenger airbag of affected vehicles at no cost.

Customers should contact TMV dealership, hotline 18001524 and 0916001524 or visit website toyotavn.com.vn and toyota.com.vn.
