Toyota recalls over 1M vehicles due to air bag problems

The more than 2,000 cars in Australia is only a small portion of the more than a million vehicles Toyota has recalled worldwide, with drivers affected in countries like America, Japan and broader Europe.

Japanese automaker Toyota has issued a safety inspection recall of about 45,000 of its older vehicles in Finland due to ongoing issues with the vehicles' airbags.

The Japanese auto giant issued a safety recall notice overnight after discovering a defect with the airbag electronic control unit that could cause injury or crashes.

A Toyota Australian spokesman said the company will contact affected auto owners in the coming weeks, adding there have been no related incidents or injuries.

The recall covers 17,000 Scion xA vehicles in the USA from 2004 through 2006.

Toyota said these are the models involved in the recall.

The recall includes Toyota's Avensis, Corolla and Corolla Verso models manufactured between July 2002 through May 2007, according to the company.

Toyota says the problem is caused when an electrical short in the vehicle damages circuits which either deactivate the air bags or cause them to deploy.
