Toyota Recalls 1.5 Million Cars

Time to check your Toyota Avalon or Lexus—the Japanese auto maker is recalling 1.5 million more vehicles, including 740,000 in the United States, because of concerns over brake fluid and fuel pump problems. In the past year, the automotive giant has recalled more than 10 million cars. No accidents have been reported because of the new problems, most of which relate to the brake master cylinder, which can cause weaker braking power when not working properly. U.S. car owners will get letters in early November if Toyota needs their cars back.
