Toyota Issues Recall on 870,000 Vehicles

By Alabama News Network

Toyota is recalling 870,000 vehicles over an issue that -- in some cases -- was caused by spiders. A problem with an air conditioner part could cause airbags to deploy unnecessarily.

There could also be a loss of power-steering force.

Toyota says spider webs can cause a blockage in a drainage tube from the air conditioner condenser. That can lead to a short circuit in the airbag system. 

The vehicles involved are model year 2012 and 2013 Camrys, Venzas and Avalons, including hybrid versions of those cars.
