Toyota issues yet another recall

Toyota has issued yet another recall, this time it is due to a potential steering problem in its Land Cruiser Amazon models.

The latest recall by the Japanese firm involves a total of 348 vehicles in the UK. Land Cruiser Amazon models manufactured between July 2002 and September 2006 are thought to have the problem.

So far, there have been just two reported incidents in Europe relating to the steering fault, however, they did not lead to an accident, Toyota said.

The same safety issue has forced the company to the recall another model - the LX 479 - which is not sold in the UK.

Meanwhile, the car maker is also recalling the Toyota Avalon over another fault. The recall mainly affects vehicles sold in North America.

Due to a range of safety issues, Toyota has had to recall millions of vehicles around the world during the past few months.
