Toyota To Call Back One Million Vehicles Over Glitches
Washington: Japanese automaker giant Toyota Motor Corp will recall over one million vehicles in the US, Japan, Canada, Mexico to fix problems related to airbags and wipers, reports said on Wednesday.

Around 752,000 Corolla and Corolla Matrix vehicles will be recalled to fix airbags that could be deployed inadvertently.

Toyota will also recall 385,000 Lexus IS, including 270,000 vehicles in the US over wiper problems.

The automaker will recall a total of 1.3 million cars globally, the Chicago Tribune reported.

An IC chip in the airbag control unit can malfunction when it receives electrical interference from other parts in the car, causing the airbags to deploy when it is not necessary.

The problem has caused minor injuries such as abrasions in 18 cases that have been reported, the newspaper quoted Toyota spokesman Naoto Fuse as saying.

As for the Lexus recall, the wiper arm nut of the front wiper in the vehicles may not be tight enough and the wiper may not work under certain weather occasions, including in snow, said Fuse.
