Toyota recalls 1.29 million vehicles

Toyota is recalling 907,000 vehicles, mostly Corolla models, around the world for faulty air bags and another 385,000 Lexus IS luxury cars for defective wipers.

Toyota Motor Corp. spokesman Naoto Fuse said Wednesday that two crashes were reported in the U.S. related to the air bag problem, but Toyota had not been able to confirm them. Toyota has confirmed 18 cases in the U.S. of abrasion-type injuries from the air bag problem, he said.

Some 752,000 Corolla and Corolla Matrix cars in the U.S. that were manufactured between December 2001 and May 2004 are being recalled for air bags that can improperly inflate.
