Toyota Recalling 2.5 Million Prius Models

Posted: Updated:

Toyota is recalling more than 2.5 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.

The automaker plans to notify affected owners by mail starting in December.

This is Toyota's second major recall in as many months.
