Toyota recalls some Camry, Avalon cars
New York, October 18, 2013
Toyota Motor Corp is recalling about 885,000 cars, mostly Camry, from the model years 2012 and 2013 due to potential problems with air conditioning condensers, the company said on Thursday.
Globally, the recall involves Camry, Avalon and Venza sedans, including 803,000 sedans in the US,
44,000 in Canada, 10,600 in Mexico, 9,100 in Saudi Arabia and the rest scattered among 15 countries.
Water from the condenser can leak onto the airbag control module, which could cause the airbag to inflate and deploy at the wrong time, Toyota said. Also, power steering may be affected by a leaky condenser.
Toyota said the issue has led to two "minor" injuries and no accidents. - Reuters
