The problem comes as Toyota struggles to move on from massive global recalls that started in October. It already has recalled more than 8.5 million vehicles for various problems, including sticking accelerator pedals, braking software glitches and defective floor mats.

Toyota revealed the latest quality problems last week, estimated to affect about 270,000 vehicles around the world. No accidents or injuries have been reported because of the defect.
