— A Toyota Highlander and Highlander Hybrid recall has been ordered for more than 3,300 SUVs because of front seat and airbag problems.
The U.S. Highlander and Highlander Hybrid recall involves about 3,100 model year 2020 vehicles and the Canadian Highlander recall includes 248 SUVs.
According to the automaker, it's possible one or both Highlander and Highlander Hybrid front seats are equipped with the wrong trim covers. The covers could prevent the seat-mounted side airbags from deploying properly in crashes.
Toyota dealers plan on replacing any faulty front seat trim covers.
The Toyota recall is expected to begin December 13, 2020.
