A Toyota spokesman said that the company had logged 79 complaints worldwide over the defect, but the company said it had received no reports of accidents or injuries related to the fault.

The recall includes about 447,000 vehicles in North America and 38,000 in Japan, the spokesman said.

Toyota said the recall was due to the possibility that the outer ring of the crankshaft pulley may become misaligned with the damper, causing noise or the illumination of an electrical system warning light.
