Toyota Recalls More than 50,000 Highlanders

Toyota announced it is recalling 50,200 Toyota Highlander SUVs for a software issue that could cause the passenger seatbelt to not work correctly.

According to this article, “A company spokeswoman said the air bag electronic control unit’s software is reading all passengers, regardless of their actual size, as small occupants. That could result in the front passenger not being protected by the seat belt with the necessary force, possibly resulting in injury in a crash.”

About 45,000 of the Highlanders were sold in the U.S.
