Toyota recalling 430,500 vehicles in 3 recalls

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (AP) - Toyota is recalling 430,500 vehicles for three separate safety problems.
    
The company said Thursday it's recalling 370,000 Sienna minivans in cold weather states because road salt can corrode the spare tire carrier under the vehicle and the tire can fall off. The recall includes Siennas from the 2004 through 2011 model years.
    
Toyota is also recalling 50,000 Highlander and Highlander hybrid SUVs from the 2014 model year because the car may not properly calculate the size of the front passenger when determining whether to fire the air bag. And it's recalling 10,500 Lexus GS 350 sedans from the 2013 model year because the brakes could activate without warning.
    
Toyota says there have been no accidents or injuries connected to the defects. Dealers will repair the vehicles for free.
