Toyota has recalled more than 47,000 cars and trucks in Canada because of faulty airbags and a switch that could prevent the vehicles from starting.

The Japanese automaker said the Venza in model years 2009 to 2011 and the 2009 Camry have been recalled because they may not shift from park or start due to a stop lamp switch.

More than 17,000 Tacoma trucks have also been recalled because of a spiral cable assembly that can disconnect the driver's airbag. It affects model years 2005 to 2009.

Owners will be notified in April. Replacement parts will be provided free.

Toyota said it isn't aware of any crashes or injuries caused by the mechanical problems. In the U.S., Toyota is recalling more than 681,000 vehicles.
