Toyota recalls 2.77 million vehicles worldwide

Toyota recalls 2.77 million vehicles worldwide

Toyota has issued a recall for 2.77 million examples of its cars globally for a possible steering fault and water pump failure. The steering fault affects previous generation Avensis, Corolla and Prius models manufactured from July 2001 to March 2009. The water pump issue includes some Prius models from July 2003 to April 2009. 

A steering component may make a knocking or rattling sound, and maybe a reduction in steering response. The vehicle will remain safe to drive even if this happens, according to the company. The water pump failure will be reported on the dashboard among the warning lights. In particular, the pump's electric power supply fuse might open, stopping the hybrid system. There have been 12 reported cases in Europe but no crashes. 

Toyota India says that the recall does not affect any of the Indian examples, but it should be mentioned that all Prius production was done in two locations in Japan for global export.

There's also news from the previous biggest recall from Toyota; the company has decided to settle a shareholder class action lawsuit in the USA for USD 24.4 million.
