Toyota has announced that it will recall over 800,000 vehicles in the U.S., and 885,000 vehicles overall, to fix a water leak from the air condition system. The water can leak into the air bag system and cause the air bag to malfunction. The air bag may not deploy in the event of a crash or may deploy unexpectedly. Additionally, the air conditioner defect may cause the power steering to stop working. This recall affects the Camry, Camry Hybrid, Avalon, Avalon Hybrid, and Venza models. These vehicles were manufactured in 2012 and 2013.
