Tokyo: Toyota Motor Corp said on Wednesday it would recall more than 1.35 million Vitz and two other models globally to fix a defect in the seatbelt, the exhaust system or both.
Subject to the recall in Japan are 525,898 Vitz, Belta and Ractis cars built from January 2005 to April 2008, Toyota said in a filing with the transport ministry. The Vitz subcompact is called Yaris in many markets.
It will also recall a combined 830,000 units in Europe, North America and other markets, a spokeswoman said.
