In the event of a crash, the airbags may not deploy and will not be able to properly protect an occupant, increasing the risk of injuries.

Air Bags — Side/Window

Summary
Toyota is recalling certain model year 2011 Rav4 vehicles, manufactured from November 24, 2011, through December 19, 2011. In the curtain shield airbags, propellant with the incorrect specification was used for the initiator assembled in the airbag inflator. In this condition, the inflator may not perform properly, causing one or both curtain shield airbags to not deploy.
Actions
Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will check the vehicle identification number to identify the curtain shield assemblies and replace the assemblies as necessary with new ones free of charge. The safety recall began on March 8, 2012. Owners may contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.
