Toyota's safety issues continue as the automaker announced Wednesday that it is recalling 1.3 million cars over issues with faulty airbags and wiper blades.
So far, two crashes related to the airbag issue have been reported in the U.S., as well as 18 minor, non-crash-related injuries to drivers.
The recall involving airbags affects some 907,000 vehicles globally, mostly Corolla models. The wiper blade issue is separate and involves 385,000 Lexus IS luxury sedans. The affected Corollas are from the 2003 and 2004 model years, while the Lexus IS vehicles affected include model years 2006 through early 2012. The recall is worldwide, but a majority of the recalled vehicles - including 752,000 Corollas and 270,000 Lexus IS vehicles - are in the U.S.
A Toyota press notice says that the airbags may be short-circuiting in their restraint systems, which may cause them to deploy accidentally.
