Toyota to recall more than 6 million cars worldwide
The recall contains some of its best sellers such as the Camry sedan, RAV4 sport utility vehicle and Corolla cars, Toyota said in a statement. For the recall, the carmaker admitted problems with seat rails, the bracket holding the steering column in place, the windshield- wiper motor and a cable attached to the air-bag module.
So far, no injuries or crashes have been reported related to those problems, and it's also not clear whether the faults stemmed from Toyota's suppliers or its manufacturing process.
The costs of the recall were not available by now, while some analysts estimated it could cost the world's biggest carmaker 60 billion yen ($588 million) to 70 billion yen ($686 million), or 10,000 yen ($98) per vehicle. ■
