Toyota to recall millions of vehicles due to safety issues

Toyota is voluntarily recalling almost 6.4 million vehicles worldwide, 1.8 million of which are from the U.S., after finding out about seat and steering wheel problems.

A document issued by the Japanese car manufacturer to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration stated that some of the recalled models have a defective seat adjustment railing that might fail to lock front seats. Other defects include a steering wheel that might cause the airbag system to malfunction.

This recall was issued after the Justice Department awarded Toyota a penalty of $1.2 billion over acceleration issues.
