Toyota is recalling about 280,000 pickup trucks and SUVs in the United States to fix a transmission problem that can let the vehicles creep forward while in neutral.

Toyota said Wednesday that certain parts of the vehicles' automatic transmissions may not immediately disengage when shifted into neutral. That can transfer some engine power to the wheels. The vehicles could creep forward at low speeds on flat surfaces if the brakes aren't applied, increasing the risk of a crash.

The company wouldn't say whether there have been any crashes or injuries.
