TORONTO -- Toyota Canada said Wednesday it is recalling more than 157,000 vehicles to fix airbags and window wipers.
They include more than 140,000 Corolla and Matrix cars from 2003 and 2004 and almost 17,000 Lexus IS models from 2006 through 2012.
The Corolla and Matrix cars are being recalled because of concerns their airbags could be deployed inadvertently due to a possible short circuit in the control module.
The automaker also said the wiper arms of the Lexus vehicles may not be sufficiently tight and may stop working if their movement is restricted, by a buildup of snow for example.
Owners of these vehicles will receive a letter via mail starting next month, it said.
