Toy­ota re­calls 412,000 ve­hi­cles in U.S. to fix steer­ing prob­lems

Austin American-Statesman - - BUSINESS -

Toy­ota Mo­tor Corp. said it is re­call­ing nearly half a mil­lion ve­hi­cles, most of them large sedans sold in the U.S., for prob­lems that can cause the steer­ing wheel to lock up. The re­call af­fects 412,000 ve­hi­cles in the U.S.: 373,000 Avalon sedans and 39,000 Lexus LX 470 SUVs.

Toy­ota has been em­broiled in its re­call cri­sis since Oc­to­ber, when it an­nounced a re­call of 5.3 mil­lion ve­hi­cles to fix floor mats that can trap ped­als and cause un­in­tended ac­cel­er­a­tion. A num­ber of re­calls have since brought Toy­ota’s to­tal to nearly 9.5 mil­lion ve­hi­cles.
