Toyota recalls 1.53 million Lexus, Avalon, Highlander models
Just when it seemed Toyota was putting its quality problems behind it, the world's largest automaker has announced another massive recall action: 1.53 million Lexus, Avalon, Highlander and other models for brake fluid and fuel pump problems.
About 740,000 are in the U.S., 599,000 in Japan and the rest in markets around the world.
The majority of vehicles this time have a potential slow fluid leak problem with a seal in the brake master cylinder. The leak could lead to weaker braking power and the brake warning light going on, the company said. Some of the non-U.S. models also have an electric fuel pump problem that could lead to stalling.
