Toyota Motor Corp recalled 1.35 million vehicles this week to fix defects in the seatbelt or exhaust systems.
Florida defective product and vehicle defect attorneys urge Toyota owners to check to see if their car is part of the vehicle recall.
About 830,000 of the cars include the Yaris, manufactured between January 2005 and April 2008 and exported to Europe, the United States and other countries.
One case of fire was reported in Japan due to faulty seatbelt design, which could cause melting when the belt is activated during a collision, Toyota said.
