- Toyota Kluger has a safety problem
A major recall has been issued on a popular car model due to safety fears after a fault was spotted in the vehicle.
Hundreds of Toyota Klugers have been recalled after a major safety issue was discovered with the vehicle’s airbags.
Safety issue affected 625 vehicles in the 2023 Kluger range TXUA70 and TXUA75 gasoline models.
Models of the Toyota Kluger Hybrid AXUH78 were also affected by the defect.
The safety issue also extends to several other variants of the car model including Kluger 2.4L Petrol 2WD, Kluger 2.4L Petrol AWD, Kluger Hybrid 2.5L.
According to an alert issued by the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transportation, airbags inside the vehicle tend to get lost over time.
“The driver’s side airbag wiring harness connection can become loose over time. As a result, the airbag warning light will illuminate and the driver’s side airbag will not deploy,” the alert states.
