TOKYO— Toyota Motor Corp. will recall around 361,800 vehicles world-wide including the Camry sedan, mostly in Japan and Europe, the auto maker said Wednesday.
Toyota, which is recalling the vehicles for three separate defects, hasn’t received any reports of crashes or injuries related to the glitches, spokeswoman Kayo Doi said in an email.
Toyota is recalling about 170,000 Camrys—including 120,000 in Europe and around 60 in the U.S.—made between March 2011 and August 2014—over faulty ball joints that may have been damaged during shipment, she said. The defect could lead to drivers losing control of the vehicles. Toyota will replace the ball joint with a new one if necessary, she said.
Toyota is also recalling around 105,800 vehicles, including certain Hiace vans, mostly in Japan, over a fuel pipe defect. It is recalling approximately 86,000 Crown and Crown Majesta vehicles in Japan over a seat belt glitch.
Toyota declined to disclose the costs associated with the recalls.
