Toyota is recalling 6.39 million vehicles globally for a variety of problems spanning nearly 30 models in Japan, the U.S., and Europe.
No injuries or crashes have been reported that are related to the recalls, but there've been two fires connected to a defective engine starter.
Twenty-seven Toyota models are being recalled, as well as the Pontiac Vibe and Subaru Trezia, made in conjunction with Toyota.
The majority of the vehicles are being recalled due to a problem with a spiral cable attached to an air bag. A separate recall involves problems with seat rails.
