Toyota recalls 1.4 Million vehicles

Toyota Motor Corporation has issued a recall for 1.43 million vehicles global for faulty airbags, the Japanese automaker said Wednesday.

The recall is not related to Takata – the airbag supplier responsible for massive recalls over the past few months.

The Prius hybrid, Prius plug-in, and the Lexus CT200h produced between October 2008 and April 2012 are being recalled for having small cracks in some of the airbag inflators that may expand and cause air bags on both the drivers’ and passengers’ sides to partially expand.

Toyota said it is not aware of any injuries or fatalities as a result of this defect.

This announcement is the latest in a string of airbag problems across multiple automakers that have resulted in recalls of over 100 million vehicles globally. At least 11 people have died from these faulty airbags, and some 100 more injured.
