(TORRANCE, Calif.) — Toyota announced on Wednesday two separate recalls affecting more than one million vehicles in the U.S.
The first recall involves approximately 752,000 Corolla sedans and Corolla Matrix hatchbacks, model years 2003 and 2004. The Japanese automaker says the airbag control module in these vehicles may have been manufactured with faulty circuits that could result in the inadvertent deployment of the front airbags or seat belt pretensioners.
The second recall includes about 270,000 Lexus IS models from 2006 to early 2012. Toyota says the nut on the front wipers might not be tight enough, causing them to become inoperative if they have to clear a heavy load, such as a pile of snow.
