The latest recall effort by Toyota is due to faulty air bags in their Corollas that can improperly inflate and faulty windshield wipers in their Lexus IS that can get stuck if there is heavy snowfall.
According to Toyota spokesperson, Naoto Fuse 2 crashes were reported in the U.S. related to the air bag problem. Toyota has also, confirmed 18 cases in the U.S. of abrasion-type injuries from the air bag problem. In total, Toyota has received 46 reports of problems involving their air bags from North America.
As part of the air bag recall, Toyota is recalling some 752,000 Corolla and Corolla Matrix cars in the U.S.
The problem wipers affect 3 Lexus IS models, manufactured from May 2005 to October 2011, including 270,000 vehicles in the U.S. and nearly 17,000 vehicles in Canada.
