2010 Corolla XRS Passenger Air Bag Recall

Hello all....i own a near new 2010 Corolla XRS with only 35,000 KMS on it. Im the original owner and just drive it in the summer time only. As i work in the customer service industry....i have hundreds of customers i deal with on a daily basis....all the Corolla"s especially my year of vehicle that come through me....i ask if they got their passenger airbag replaced and have had any after issues......almost all had told me that they now hear funny rattles and squeeks that werent there before. Im afraid now to even get mine done..............anyone out there good or bad experiences, i would like to hear....thanks.

No rattles on mine yet. Get it done ASAP because if the airbag deploys, pieces of metal can fly off and kill or injure your passenger.Also, you could be held responsable for his or her death if you ignored this recall.
Also,while the technician is under there for the air bag ,he also check the condition of the cabin air filter.The rattles could be related to a poor installation of the cabin air filter.There is a lot of debris caught in that filter...leaves,twigs etc that can make noise when the blower is in use.

2013 Corolla S I worried about that too--factory is your best build on a lot of things--and I delayed quite a while for that reason. That was easy, since I virtually never have a passenger. But I was going to take a road trip with some friends, so I bit the bullet and took it in. Happy to say I've had no problems at all.

I had it done on my 2011 Corolla as well as my mom's 2011 Corolla. I brought both to a well known Toyota dealer near me and they did a good job on both it seems. I've had no new squeaks or rattles on both cars. My recommendation is to find the best Toyota dealer near you with good reviews concerning their service department. If you do notice anything after the work is done, bring it back ASAP.

By the way, that's a nice XRS you have. 35,000kms is insanely low mileage for that car!

Had my passenger air bag replaced a couple weeks ago when I took it in for the state inspection, took them about an hour to do the whole thing, no new squeaks or rattles, take it to the Toyota dealer in your area that seems to be the one that goes the extra mile, not the one everyone hates
