Approximately 89,700 vehicles are involved in this recall. The front passenger occupant classification system has a seatbelt tension sensor that could malfunction over time and could cause the airbag warning light and the passenger airbag ďOFFĒ indicator to illuminate. In addition, the front passenger airbag, knee airbag, and the passenger seat-mounted side airbag may be deactivated. If these airbags are deactivated, there is an increased risk of injury to the occupant in the event of a crash.
Toyota is currently developing the remedy and will notify owners by mid-February 2019.Tacoma Recall
Approximately 44,000 vehicles are involved in this recall. Due to improper manufacturing processes by a part supplier, a seal in certain brake master cylinders may become damaged over time and leak brake fluid internally.

For all involved vehicles, Toyota dealers will replace the brake master cylinder with a new brake master cylinder that is not affected by this condition at no cost to customers. Owners of all involved vehicles will receive direct notification by first-class mail starting in late-January 2019.
