    Summary: Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (Toyota) is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 Toyota Prius V vehicles manufactured November 7, 2013, to January 7, 2015.

    Consequence: If the air bag does not deploy as intended, there is an increased risk of injury in the event of a crash.

    Actions: Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will re-calibrate of the OCS system, free of charge. The recall began February 12, 2015.
