Toyota has announced the mass recall of vehicles in the US, Europe and China over concerns about accelerator pedals getting stuck on floor mats.
Colin Hensley, general manager of Toyota's European operations, said the carmaker was trying to establish how many European models shared the parts used in the cars recalled in the US.
The firm has announced plans to recall 1,1 million more cars in the US a day after saying it was suspending sales of eight popular US models, the BBC reported.
According to an application to China's quality control office, it wants to recall 75,552 RAV4 vehicles there.
Toyota also announced 750 jobs could go at its Burnaston plant in the UK.
Last week, the world's largest carmaker recalled 2,3 million cars in the US with faulty pedals.
It has now recalled almost 8 million cars in the US in the past four months.
