  • Recall Alert: Approximately one million Toyota and Lexus vehicles from the model years 2020 to 2022 are subject to a recent safety recall.
  • The identified issue stems from a defective sensor in the front passenger seat, manufactured inaccurately, which poses a risk of short-circuiting.
  • The faulty sensor raises concerns as it could lead to potential airbag failure in specific crash scenarios.
  • Affected models involve six Toyota variants and two Lexus models, including popular names such as Camry, Corolla, RAV4, and Lexus RX.
