DETROIT (WWJ/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, including Michigan, 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.

The company is also recalling 10,500 Lexus GS 350 sedans from the 2013 model year because the brakes could activate without warning — without brake lights — causing  “unexpected moderate deceleration.’

To date, Toyota says it is not aware of any accidents, injuries or deaths caused by the defect. For all involved vehicles, Lexus dealers will replace the brake pedal support assembly.

Detailed information about each of these recalls is available to customers at www.lexus.com/recall or by calling the Lexus Customer Satisfaction Center at 1-800-25-LEXUS (1-800-255-3987).
