CNBC: "Toyota recalls 320,000 vehicles for safety issue"

Toyota is recalling 320,000 vehicles due to a safety issue.

Recalled vehicles are equipped with side-curtain shield air bags, which deploy from the roof in some crashes.

Due to improper programming of the air bag control modules, it is possible under certain conditions for the air bags and seat belt pretensioners to activate shortly after start-up when it is not necessary, the company said Tuesday. Unexpected activation of the air bags could injure occupants, Toyota said.

Affected vehicles include 2003 to 2006 Land Cruisers, 2004 to 2006 4Runners, 2005 to 2006 Tundras and Sequoias, and 2003 to 2006 Lexus LX and GX 470s.

The news came not long after Toyota said Tuesday that January 2016 sales were down 4.7 percent. ... issue.html
