Toyota Motor Corp. is launching two worldwide recalls to fix faulty airbag and braking systems in nearly 143,000 pickup trucks and SUVs. More than 90% of the vehicles were sold in the U.S.

One campaign targets 95,900 of the company’s Toyota Land Cruiser (pictured) and Lexus LX 570 large SUVs that were made during the 2008-2019 model years. Affected vehicles have a seatbelt pretensioner sensor that could fail and turn off the front passenger’s front, side and knee airbags.

A separate recall targets Toyota Tacoma midsize pickup trucks with brake master cylinders that could develop internal leaks. The callback involves 47,000 trucks made in the 2018-2019 model years. Damaged cylinders would reduce front braking capability and give the brake pedal a spongy feel.

Toyota says both recalls will begin in late January.
