Toyota recalls 3.37m cars

Posted on

WASHINGTON: Toyota Motor Corp has recalled 3.37 million cars worldwide over possible defects involving airbags and emissions control units.

The automaker on Wednesday said it was recalling 2.87m cars over a possible fault in emissions control units. That followed an announcement late on Tuesday that 1.43m cars needed repairs over a separate issue involving air bag inflators.

Some of the automaker’s gasoline-electric hybrid Prius models contain both of the potential defects, taking the total number of vehicles affected by the recalls to 3.37m.

No injuries have been linked to either issue.

Toyota on Wednesday said evaporative fuel emissions control units in models produced from 2006 to 2015 including the Prius, Auris compact hatchback and its popular Corolla models were prone to cracks, which could expand over time and lead to fuel leaks.
