Toyota is recalling the 1st generation Venza because its driver-side airbags might not work anymore. The wires connecting crash sensors to the airbag control unit (ACU) can break. When that happens, the driver-side curtain shield and side airbags won't deploy in a crash.

A Bit More About This Recall

  • It's been a while since the Venza was last recalled for seat heater issues way back in 2016.
  • This recall covers the entire 1st generation which spans the 2009 to 2015 model years. That's roughly 360,000 vehicles worldwide.
  • Despite the risk, Toyota doesn't plan on sending out recall notices until June 2021. At that time dealerships will start replacing the front-door wiring harnesses.
