Toyota recall 885,000 vehicles
885,000 vehicles have been recalled by Toyota to fix a problem that could cause a water leak from the air conditioning unit.
It said water could leak into the airbag control module, causing a short circuit and triggering a warning light. In some cases airbags "could become disabled or could inadvertently deploy" and in limited cases the power steering function could be disabled, it added.
The models affected by the recall are the Camry, Camry Hybrid, Avalon, Avalon Hybrid, and Venza made in 2012-13.
Some 847,000 cars will be recalled in North America, while the rest will be in Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
A spokeswoman for Toyota told the BBC that it had received reports of two minor injuries due to the issue, but there had been no reports of any vehicles crashing.
This is the third major recall that Toyota has issued in recent weeks.
Last month, the company called back more than 780,000 vehicles in the US to address a suspension defect in its RAV4 and Lexus HS 250h models, after fears that an initial recall last year did not fix the problem.
Furthermore, the latest announcement puts the number of recalls over the past two years at nearly 20 million, far more than the number it called between 2009 and 2010.
Toyota's sales had suffered in the aftermath of those recalls, which were prompted by problems with accelerator pedals becoming trapped under floor mats.
