Toyota Motor Corporation has issued a global recall of 3.37 million vehicles due to problems with air bags and with emissions control units. 2.87 million of the vehicles could have defects with the emissions controls and 1.43 million have defects with the air bag deflators. There are around 930,000 of these vehicles that could have problems with both defects!
The problem with the emissions control involves units having cracks that can cause fuel leaks. The vehicles involved are model years 2006 to 2015 and are the Prius, Auris hatchback, and the Corolla. Air bag inflators, as the other subject defect, can contain small cracks in the weld that separate the inflator chambers in model years 2010 to 2012 and are the Prius and Lexus CT200h. The United States has 482,000 of the recall subject vehicles and owners should be aware that air bags could partially cause injury after partially inflating into the vehicle interior.
