In the past Toyota also recalled the Glanza for a faulty airbag controller. Certain units produced between December 2022 and January 2023, of the Glanza were affected. Reports revealed that the failure of the airbag control could lead to non deployment of the airbag in an unlikely event of a crash. Toyota had asked its customers to bring their vehicles to the nearest dealership and get the module fixed free of cost.
