Toyota Corolla Recall, Sequoia Recall, Tundra Recall, Lexus SC Recall, Pontiac Vibe Recall; Deadly Air Bag Danger

Deadly air bag defects trigger
Lexus and Toyota Recall
Report Receipt Date: APR 11, 2013 
NHTSA Campaign Number: 13V133000 
Component(s): AIR BAGS

SUMMARY:
Toyota is recalling certain model year 2002 through 2004 Toyota Corolla, Corolla Matrix, Sequoia, Tundra, Lexus SC, and Pontiac Vibe vehicles to address a safety defect in the passenger side frontal air bag which may produce excessive internal pressure causing the inflator to rupture upon deployment of the air bag. This recall addresses both the passenger side frontal air bags that were originally installed in the vehicles, as well as replacement air bags that may have been installed as replacement service parts. A replacement air bag may have been installed, as one example, if a vehicle had been in a crash necessitating the replacement of the passenger side frontal air bag.
CONSEQUENCE:
In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the passenger's frontal air bag, the inflator could rupture with metal fragments striking and potentially seriously injuring the passenger seat occupant or other occupants.
