Toyota recalls 1.4-M cars over airbag issues

WASHINGTON/TOKYO (Reuters) – Japan’s Toyota Motor Corp has recalled 3.37 million cars worldwide over possible defects involving airbags and emissions control units.

The automaker on Wednesday said it was recalling 2.87 million cars over a possible fault in emissions control units.

That followed an announcement late on Tuesday that 1.43 million cars needed repairs over a separate issue involving air bag inflators.

Some of the automaker’s gasoline-electric hybrid Prius models contain both of the potential defects, taking the total number of vehicles affected by the recalls to 3.37 million. No injuries have been linked to either issue.
