Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc., is conducting a Toyota Prius V recall of nearly 5,000 hybrids. Affected by the recall are model-years 2014-2015 Prius V vehicles.
In all of the aforementioned hybrids, the front passenger seats are equipped with an Occupant Classification System (OCS). This system activates and deactivates the occupant seat air bag depending on the weight of the passenger.
The problem with the hybrids affected by the Toyota Prius V recall is that the system may not have been calibrated properly. This means that the airbag may not deploy in the event of a crash. The automaker is not aware of any injuries or fatalities due to the problem. Owners of the affected vehicles will be notified by Toyota and the dealers will perform recalibration free of charge. You can get detailed information by calling Toyota Customer Service at 1-800-331-4331.
