Killer Airbag : Toyota Warns Vehicle Owners To Stop Driving Corola, Matrix, Others

Toyota Motor  said on Monday it is urging the owners of 50,000 older vehicles to get immediate recall repairs, because an air bag inflator could explode and potentially kill motorists.

The Japanese automaker said the “Do Not Drive” advisory covers some 2003-2004 model year Corolla, 2003-2004 Corolla Matrix, and 2004-2005 RAV4s with Takata air bag inflators.

More than 30 deaths worldwide, including 26 U.S. deaths, and hundreds of injuries in various automakers’ vehicles since 2009 are linked to Takata air bag inflators that can explode, unleashing metal shrapnel inside cars and trucks.
