Toyota Vehicles Recalled Again to Get Rid of Ammonium Nitrate Inflators

Toyota is recalling 65,000 vehicles to replace the front passenger airbag inflators … again. From CarComplaints.com:

Although the previous recall used new replacement Takata airbag inflators, this latest recall will use inflators supplied by a company other than Takata.

Those previous replacements were still using ammonium nitrate, a propellant that breaks down and explodes unpredictably when exposed to humidity and moisture.

Takata’s inflators has been a long-running nightmare for millions of owners, hopefully this is the last time you’ll have to bring your car in for service related to these exploding chunks of metal.
