TOKYO (AP) - Toyota is recalling 369,000 vehicles worldwide. Toyota says some 200,000 Lexus RX400s, Highlanders and other hybrid models in Japan have a problem with an inverter in the hybrid system, which may cause an alarm to go off, and the hybrid may stop running. Another 169,000 vehicles have an engine bolt defect. Toyota says the bolts may loosen in the Lexus GS350, IS350, Crown and Mark X, and the engine could stall.
