WASHINGTON — Toyota is recalling 11,153 2012-'13 Scion iQ vehicles because the front passenger airbags may not deploy, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

"The cable for the Occupant Classification System may become damaged when sliding the passenger seat forward or backward," said NHTSA in its summary of the problem. "If the cable becomes damaged, the front passenger airbags may not deploy or they may deploy inappropriately for the passenger's size and position. This could increase the risk of personal injury during the event of a vehicle crash necessitating airbag deployment."

The affected Scion iQs were built from July 31, 2011 through October 12, 2012. Scion dealers will install a protective cover on the Occupant Classification System weight sensor cable.

The recall is expected to begin in December. Owners can contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.

Edmunds says: There will be a wait for parts with this recall, but it's something that should be addressed as soon as you get the notification letter.
