Toyota Recalling Over 100K Avalons

TORRANCE, California (AP) -- Toyota is recalling 119,000 Avalon sedans from the 2003 and 2004 model years because their air bags could deploy inadvertently.

The company says circuits within the air bag control module can be damaged if they're exposed to interference from other electrical components in the car.

The defect can also cause the seat belt pre-tensioners to tighten without warning.

Toyota says it knows of one minor injury related to the defect, but no accidents.

The company is notifying owners of the recall. Dealers will add an electrical noise filter to the air bag control module for free.
