The largest recall of the three includes 170,000 Toyota Camrys. According to the recall announcement, the Camrys have a faulty ball joint that may result in a loss of vehicle control. The majority of the Camrys, approximately 120,000, are located in Europe. Another 40,000 are recalled in Japan.

The second recall mostly affects Japan. The recall is of 105,800 Hiace, Regius Ace and Dyna vehicles, all of which were manufactured by Toyota. The vehicles are being recalled due to an issue with the fuel pipe.

Lastly, Toyota will be recalling even more potentially dangerous vehicles from Japan. About 86,000 Crown and Crown Majesta models are now recalled in order to replace the outer seat belt assemblies.

Toyota claims that none of the recalls have resulted in any crashes, injuries or deaths.
