BIRMINGHAM - AL -

Toyota is recalling more than two-and-a-half million Prius second generation models worldwide. The recall was prompted by problems with the vehicle's steering shaft and electric-powered motor pumps. Toyota says the vehicles could be damaged and neglect to switch into hybrid mode if they aren't fixed.  

670-thousand of the recalled vehicles were sold in the U-S, the others are spread across Japan and Europe. The automaker plans to notify affected owners by mail starting in December.


This is Toyota's second major recall in months.
