Toyota recalls 24,000 vehicles for airbag fix

Toyota has issued a recall for 23,964 vehicles across its 2015 Corolla, Fortuner, HiLux and Prius model lines over concerns a faulty sensor could cause the airbags to deactivate. According to the Japanese automotive giant, the insulations on the IC chips peel over time on affected cars, creating an open circuit. If the condition occurs, the airbag warning light will illuminate, while the side/curtain and/or front airbags could be deactivated.
