The recall covers certain Tacoma models from 2005 to early 2009, and relates to the steering-wheel spiral cable design. Friction between that cable and a retainer might, over time, cause connectivity to be lost with the driver's side airbag module—preventing deployment in a crash.
In affected vehicles, after the cable is worn away, the airbag warning lamp would remain illuminated after starting the engine.
Toyota will soon be mailing letters out to owners of the affected vehicles; and once the replacement parts are in—anticipated to begin in early April 2012—Toyota will get a further notice.
