Toyota recall yet more cars
Car maker Toyota is recalling 6.4 million vehicles globally, including 35,124 in the UK, over five separate issues.
The latest recall, which affects 27 different models, is the fifth major one that the company has issued in recent months.
The BBC reports that the recalls include:
3.5 million vehicles due to an issue with the driver's side airbag
Approximately 2.32 million vehicles over problems with the seat rails
Some 760,000 vehicles because of a potential defect with the steering column bracket
Nearly 160,000 vehicles to replace the windshield wiper motors
Around 20,000 vehicles due to a glitch with the engine starters that poses a fire risk.
No fatalities have so far been reported due to these issues
Overall, the company has recalled more than 25 million vehicles over the past two-and-a-half years.
Earlier this year, the firm agreed a $1.2bn (£720m) settlement with US regulators after a four-year inquiry into its reporting of safety issues after a family of 4 died due to an acceleration problem.
