I believe it's an extension of an on going known problem, with a specific airbag supplier.

I'm expecting a range of VIN numbers to be released. Be quite handy in a way for possibly affected cars to have the bags replaced as they are recommended to be replaced after 10 years anyway!

I think as Bob says, might not be updated with latest status...

(Be nice if that site had a "up to date as of [date]" sign so it was clearer when a recall is in the news)

I've jsut phoned our local Toyota and they said they know very little about this issue,i had to tell the person i was talking to what the problem was :shok: :shok:
She then spoke to someone and i was told if there is an issue with ours we will be getting a letter,if no problem no letter??
I was hoping they could have told me there and then on the phone :rolleyes:
