Lexus ES300, Toyota Camry Recalled

Toyota Motor Company, Ltd.

Models: Lexus ES300 Year: 2002

Toyota Camry Year: 2002

Number Involved: 19,587

Dates of Manufacture: July - November 2001

Defect: On these passenger vehicles equipped with a three-spoke style steering wheel, during air bag deployment, it is possible that the bottom seam of the front driver's side air bag module cover (horn pad) could be torn away, allowing the bottom portion of the cover to completely detach from the air bag module. If this should occur, there is a possibility that the detached bottom portion may strike the driver, causing personal injury.

Remedy: Dealers will replace the driver's side air bag module. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification was to begin during January 2002. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Lexus at 1-888-333-9376 or Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.
