Toyota recalls 1.7m vehicles globally

Japanese car manufacturer Toyota is to recall nearly 1.7 million vehicles worldwide over concerns about a possible fuel leakage.

About 1.2 million models are being recalled in Japan and 421,000 overseas, including 140,000 of the Avensis models in Europe.

Japan’s transport ministry said slight cracks could appear in fuel pipes which could cause leakages if untreated.

No accidents have been reported because of the flaw, said Toyota.
