Recall Alert: Toyota Recalls 1.67 Million Vehicles Worldwide
Toyota Motor Corp. announced Wednesday that it would recall 1.67 million vehicles world-wide to check for defects including faulty brakes and problems with fuel components.
In an email to The Wall Street Journal, Toyota said that roughly 802,000 vehicles had a defect in their brake systems. This issue affects some Crown Majesta, Crown, Noah and Voxy models produced between June 2007 and June 2012. The Crown Majesta is sold in Japan and China and the Noah only sold in Asia.
Toyota says that roughly 759,000 vehicles globally produced between January 2005 and September 2010 had problems with their fuel delivery pipes, which raises the risk of leaking fuel and could potentially lead to fires.
The fuel delivery recall covers 423,000 Lexus cars in the U.S. The models include 2007 through 2010 model year LS sedans; 2006 through 2011 GS sport sedans; 2006-2011 IS compact cars; 2010 IS C convertibles; and 2008-2010 IS-F high performance cars.
