This recall is for the steering intermediate shaft, but it's only for the Prius so far. Can a recall on the RAV4 be far behind?
Toyota recalls another 2.77 million cars - Nov. 14, 2012
HONG KONG (CNNMoney) -- Toyota Motors said Wednesday it was recalling 2.77 million cars worldwide, its second major recall in as many months.
The recall mainly covers certain Prius models and was prompted by a problem with the steering intermediate extension shafts, which can suffer damage if sharp turns are made at slow speeds.
A second problem with electric-powered motor pumps affected some 630,000 vehicles, the company said. The fault may result in a failure of hybrid systems during operation.
The automaker said 670,000 of the recalled cars
were sold in the United States. Owners will be notified by mail starting in December.
An additional 1.5 million vehicles were being recalled in Japan, along with 496,000 in Europe.
