The glitches were found in 27 models — including the RAV4 SUV and Yaris subcompact. Toyota said faults were also found in the Pontiac Vibe and the Subaru Trezia, two models the carmaker built for General Motors and Fuji Heavy Industries. In February, the company recalled 1.9 million of its bestselling Prius cars over a software fault.

The latest recall is the second largest to date by the company. Toyota said some 3.5 million vehicles were being recalled to replace a spiral cable that could be damaged when the steering wheel is turned, causing the air bag to fail to activate in the event of a crash. About half of those vehicles, produced between April 2004 and December 2010, are in North America.
