(AP) — Toyota is recalling about 2.9 million cars in the U.S. because the airbags may not inflate in a crash.
The recall covers certain 2011-2019 Corollas, the 2011 to 2013 Matrix, the 2012 through 2018 Avalon and the 2013 to 2018 Avalon Hybrid.
Toyota says the airbag control computer may not be properly protected against electrical interference. That can lead to incomplete airbag deployment or failure to inflate in a crash.
In most cases, Toyota dealers will install a noise filter between the airbag control computer and a wiring harness.
In some cases, dealers will inspect the computer to determine if it needs the filter.
Owners will be notified by mid-March.
