Yet another massive Toyota vehicle recall

Toyota has issued another massive vehicle recall this one covering 1.1 million cars around the world for a pair of defects. The vehicles include 752,000 Corolla and Corolla Matrix vehicles in the US. These vehicles have airbags that could deploy accidentally according to Toyota. This is the third recall Toyota has issued since October to involve over 1 million vehicles.

According to Toyota, an IC chip in the airbag control unit can malfunction premises of electrical interference from other parts causing the airbags to deploy accidentally. Toyota says that this problem has caused minor injuries in 18 cases that have been reported.

To fix the problem Toyota plans to add an electric signal filter to the airbag control module of recalled vehicles. Toyota says the repair will take as long as an hour and a half. Toyota is blaming the issue on one of its suppliers and may seek financial reimbursement. The problem with the windshield wipers involves a nut may be tight enough and calls the wipers to fail.
