Although unrelated to the Takata airbag recall, Toyota has issued a recall for over 1.4 million cars affected by defective airbags.
They have not released the distributors name as of yet but did say that this issue is separate from the previous Takata airbag issue. The problem with these airbags are on the sides, not on the steering wheel or passenger side dashboard.
Models involved in this recall include three hybrid models including the Prius, the Prius Plug-in and the Lexus CT200h.
Fortunately, Toyota is not aware of any injuries or deaths caused by the airbags at this point in time.
