Toyota is recalling nearly 1.7 million vehicles worldwide for various defects that may cause fuel leakage and other problems - the latest in quality control woes for the Japanese automaker.

Toyota said Wednesday it was recalling several models, including the IS and GS Lexus luxury models in North America and the Avensis sedan and station wagon models in Europe. It is also recalling about a dozen models in Japan.

There have been no accidents suspected of being related to the defects, according to Toyota.

No one at Toyota New Zealand could be reached tonight to comment on whether vehicles in New Zealand would be affected by the recall.
