More than 4,900 of Toyota's newly-redesigned Avalon sedans are being recalled for potential steering problems. The recall comes weeks after the debut of the car, which is built only in Kentucky USA and sold in the United States as well as exported to the Middle East. A Toyota USA spokeswoman said the steering column on some early production models may not have been welded properly, creating the possibility that drivers could lose control. One person in USA reported the problem but no accidents have been reported. Toyota began building the redesigned Avalon in January, and it began showing up at dealerships in February. It is unclear whether Middle East dealers plan to recall cars already sold in the region.
