Voluntary Safety Recall Announced for 2001-2003 Lexus SC 430

2001 Lexus SC 430

Lexus USA has issued a voluntary safety recall for the 2001-2003 Lexus SC 430 due to an issue with the front passenger airbag — here’s a description of the problem:

The involved vehicles are equipped with front passenger airbag inflators which could have been assembled with improperly manufactured propellant wafers.  Improperly manufactured propellant wafers could cause the inflator to rupture and the front passenger airbag to deploy abnormally in the event of a crash.

Affected SC 430 owners will be notified by mail, and should the vehicle be equipped with the defective inflator, it will be replaced at no charge.

Sharing a steering wheel also means sharing an airbag with a Corolla. haha
