Toyota is recalling 870,000 cars, because of a glitch sometimes caused by spiders.

Their webs can block a drainage tube, letting water drip into an airbag circuit.

That can cause your airbag to short-circuit, or in some cases, to deploy.

The recall includes recent model Camrys, Venzas, and Avalons.
