Toyota recalls 11,200 Scion iQ vehicles in US


WASHINGTON (AFP) - Toyota announced on Wednesday a recall of 11,200 Scion iQ cars in the United States to fix a problem that could cause airbags and seat belts to malfunction.

Toyota Motor Sales, USA, said the safety recall affected certain 2012 and 2013 model years of the Scion iQs.

Toyota said it would install protective covers on weight sensors in the front passenger seat that control airbags and seat belts to prevent possible damage caused by the seat sliding back and forth.

No crashes or injuries have been reported relating to the problem, the company said.
