Toyota Recalls 130,000 US Yaris Cars

Toyota Recalls 130,000 US Yaris Cars
Company Recalls 1.3M Vehicles Worldwide
POSTED: Wednesday, January 28, 2009




NEW YORK -- Toyota is recalling 1.3 million vehicles worldwide due to a seat belt defect. The recall includes more than 130,000 Yaris models sold in the U.S.

Toyota Motor Sales USA said it is working with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to recall 134,900 model-year 2006 and 2007 Yaris subcompact cars. The automaker says in severe front-end collisions, the seat belt is at risk of causing a foam pad in the vehicle to ignite.

Toyota spokesman Brian R. Lyons said no one has reported a case where that has actually happened.

He said consumers who own the vehicle will receive letters next week. They can then take the car to their dealer to perform an hour-long fix of the problem.
