Toyota

DETROIT — Toyota is recalling 803,000 vehicles in the U.S. because their air bags or power steering could stop working.

The Camry and Camry hybrid, Avalon and Avalon hybrid, and Venza from the 2012 and 2013 model years are affected.

Toyota says water from the air conditioning condenser can leak onto the air bag control module and illuminate the air bag warning light, disable the bag or cause the bags to deploy inadvertently. The power steering assist function could become inoperable.

Owners will be notified starting next month. Toyota dealers will repair the problem for free.

Nissan, Infiniti SUVs

DETROIT — Nissan Motor Co. is recalling more than 188,000 Nissan and Infiniti SUVs to fix faulty brake control software that could increase the risk of a crash.

The recall covers some 2013-14 Nissan Pathfinders and the 2013 Infiniti JX35 and 2014 QX60.

Nissan says that during light braking on rough roads, the anti­lock brake software could cause longer stopping distances.

Nissan will notify owners within 60 days, and dealers will reprogram the anti-lock brakes free of charge. Owners with questions can contact Nissan at (800) 647-7261.

Hyundai Genesis

Hyundai said it will recall about 27,500 of its 2009-12 Genesis sedans sold in the United States.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said drivers have to push down hard on the brake pedal and brake effectiveness was reduced in upscale Hyundais.

Hyundai plans to replace the brake fluid on the vehicles. Already, the automaker has been replacing the fluid in some cars when owners complained of problems as part of a service campaign that fell short of a full recall.
