Senate panel to review Toyota recalls

WASHINGTON (AP) - Toyota's maintenance crews are going to be even busier.

The company says it'll be repairing more than 1.6 million vehicles around the world -- including some in the U.S. and Japan -- for oil hoses that could leak.

Meanwhile, company executives will be answering questions from a Senate panel today about the recalls of 8.5 million vehicles.

Three Toyota executives and Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood are among the witnesses expected to appear before the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation today. There will likely be more questions about sudden unintended acceleration.

Since September, Toyota has recalled about 6 million vehicles in the U.S., 8.5 million globally. Still, questions remain. A review conducted by The New York Times found numerous complaints to the government about speed control problems in Toyota Camry sedans not included in the recalls.
