    Subject:
    Safety (Noncompliance) Recall G0J
    2016 Model Year Camry, Avalon, Avalon HV Vehicles Occupant Classification System (OCS) Sensor

    On April 13, 2016, Toyota will file a Noncompliance Information Report (NCIR) with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) informing the agency of our intent to conduct a voluntary Safety Noncompliance Recall on Certain 2016 Model Year Camry, Avalon, Avalon HV vehicles.

    Condition:
    In the involved vehicles, the front passenger seat is equipped with an Occupant Classification System (OCS) which activates/deactivates the front passenger air bag system, depending on the weight of the occupant. There is a possibility that some vehicles may not have received proper OCS calibration during the vehicle manufacturing process. With the improper calibration, under some conditions, the front passenger air bag and the front passenger knee air bag may not deploy as designed in a crash, increasing the risk of an injury to a front seat passenger.

    Remedy:
    Toyota dealers will re-initialize the Occupant Classification System at NO CHARGE to the vehicle owner.

    Covered Vehicles:
    There are approximately 58,500 vehicles covered by this Safety (Noncompliance) Recall. Also note that there are approximately 30 vehicles in Puerto Rico involved in this Safety (Noncompliance) Recall.
