Toyota is recalling 1.53 million Lexus, Avalon and other models, mostly in the U.S. and Japan, for brake fluid and fuel pump problems. This is the latest in a string of quality lapses for the world’s No. 1 automaker. Toyota Motor will call back for repairs about 740,000 cars in the U.S. and 599,000 in Japan. The remainder are in Europe and other markets around the world. Over the past year, Toyota has recalled more than 10 million cars and trucks worldwide for a variety of safety problems. In August, Toyota called back 1.33 million Corolla sedans and Matrix hatchbacks in the U.S. and Canada because their engines may stall.
The majority of vehicles this time around need to be fixed for a problem with the brake master cylinder, which could lead to weaker braking power. Some models in Japan and elsewhere — but not in North America — have an electrical problem with the fuel pump, which could cause the engine to stall.
