NEWS:   Toyota is recalling certain model year 2013 Scion FR-S vehicles

JUNE 2012 -- Toyota is recalling certain model year 2013 Scion FR-S vehicles manufactured from march 22, 2012, through May 14, 2012. The owner’s manual contains an inaccurate description of the actual operation of the front passenger occupant classification system. Other portions of the owner’s manual, describing the air bag system, require clarification. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with federal motor vehicle safety standard (fmvss) no. 208, “occupant crash protection.” If a user reads and follows inaccurate owner’s manual information, this could lead to an increased risk of injury to a front passenger seat occupant under certain crash conditions. Toyota will notify owners, and will mail corrected inserts for the owner’s manuals, free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during june 2012.
