Toyota, the world’s biggest auto-maker, is recalling 6.39 million vehicles world-wide because of various faults, it announced Wednesday.
The recall, which applies to 27 models in five different regions of the world, is the second-largest in the Japanese automaker’s history, Reuters reports.
“Toyota is not aware of any injuries or fatalities caused by this condition,” the company wrote in a statement about the recall in North America, where more than 1.3 million cars are being called back.
The faults include steering problems that could keep the airbag from deploying, an engine starter risk that could be a fire hazard and a driver’s seat defect that could cause the seat to slide forward in a crash.
The glitches were found in 27 different Toyota models, including RAV4, Corolla, Yaris, Matrix and Highlander, that have all been sold globally. Toyota issued a recall of 7.4 million cars in 2012 and a recall of 2.1 million vehicles earlier this year.
