has been subpoenaed by a federal grand jury in New York to turn over documents related to steering problems in some of its cars.

Toyota, in a statement Tuesday, said it would cooperate with the probe.

Toyota, the world's No. 1 automaker, said the subpoena was issued in late June. Toyota said it was its second subpoena from a federal grand jury.

Toyota said the grand jury didn't specify the models of vehicles in the subpoena. The subpoeana specifically relates to steering relay rods.
