    Subject: Safety Recall G05
    2016 Avalon and Certain 2017 Camry Incorrect Passenger Knee Airbag Fasteners

    On December 13, 2016, Toyota filed a Defect Information Report (DIR) with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) informing the agency of our intent to conduct a voluntary Safety Recall on certain 2016 Avalon and certain 2017 Camry vehicles.

    The following information is provided to inform you and your staff of the program notification schedule and your degree of involvement.

    During vehicle assembly, it is possible that incorrect fasteners were used to install the front passenger knee airbag assembly. This could affect its performance, increasing the risk of injury in a crash.

    Any authorized Toyota dealer will inspect the vehicle to determine if incorrect fasteners were used to install the front passenger knee air bag module. If incorrect fasteners are found, proper bolts will be installed and the mounting brackets will be replaced at NO CHARGE to the customer.

    Covered Vehicles:
    There are four 2016 Avalon and eight 2017 Camry vehicles covered by this Safety Recall. There were no vehicles distributed to Puerto Rico.

    Owner Notification:
    The Toyota Customer Experience Center will call all vehicle owners to inform them that their vehicle is involved in this Safety Recall and to assist in scheduling an appointment at the dealer. Toyota will then notify any owners who have not had this Safety Recall completed by early February via first class mail.
