Take note of this if you own a Toyota. Toyota announced today that it is recalling 1.43 million vehicles for defective air bags and 2.87 million vehicles for faulty fuel emissions controls although at this time Toyota Motor Corp. said it has not received any reports of injuries or fatalities related to either recall.
The first recall for defective air bags affects Prius hybrids, Prius plug-ins and Lexus CT200h vehicles made between October 2008 and April 2012 — 743,000 vehicles in Japan, 495,000 in North America, 141,000 in Europe, 9,000 in China and 46,000 in other regions.
The second recall affects various Prius models, the Auris, Corolla, Zelas, Lucas and Lexus HS250h and CT200h produced from April 2006 through August 2015 — 1.55 million vehicles in Japan, 713,000 in Europe, 35,000 in China and 568,000 elsewhere, but none in North America.
Toyota said cracks can develop in the coating of emissions control parts called the canister, possibly leading to fuel leaks.
