TOKYO, Oct. 15 (UPI) -- Japanese automaker Toyota is recalling 1.75 million vehicles worldwide, citing faulty brakes and other issues.
Brake malfunction is the largest of the three issues that caused the company to recall the vehicles, reports the BBC.
A faulty brake system, which is causing cracks and consequently a brake fluid leaks, led to the recall of 802,000 vehicles including the Crown Majesta, Crown, Noah and Voxy models produced between June 2007 and June 2012.
The second part of the recall applies to 759,000 various Lexus models manufactured between January 2005 and September 2010 affected by a faulty fuel delivery pipe system which could result in a leak and increased fire risk.
Over 190,000 vehicles sold solely in Japan, specifically the Corolla Rumion and Auris models manufactured between October 2006 and October 2014, are being recalled for faulty fuel suction plates which also could cause a fuel leak and increased fire risk.
Toyota said it will replace the faulty parts on the vehicles.
The recall comes after automakers have been put under intense scrutiny following the GM ignition switch defect that led to more than a dozen fatalities and put CEO Mary Barra in the hot seat in front of Congress.
Toyota has had its own share of safety troubles. It had to include a passenger-seat airbag defect on its 2013 recall list in June, affecting 2.14 million vehicles.
The company reports it has no knowledge of any crashes, injuries or fatalities due to the current defects.
