Toyota issues voluntary vehicle recall over spiders
From the "this makes my skin crawl" files, Toyota has announced a voluntary recall of several models of cars, partially due to spiders.
The company issued a statement saying there is problem with the vehicles' air conditioning condensers, which is causing airbags to spontaneously inflate and deploy.
While there have only been three reports of spontaneous airbag deployments, Toyota's investigation found that the only consistant factor in these incidents were spiders building webs inside the a/c's drainage tube.
The leakage may also cause problems with the vehicles' power steering assist functions.
Over 800,000 vehicles are being recalled in the U.S, with another 82,000 being recalled worldwide.
In Canada, where about 44,000 vehicles are affected, the recall applies to Toyota's 2012 and 2013 Camrys, the Camry Hybrid, the 2012 and 2013 Avalons, and its 2012 and 2013 Venza models.
