Toyota recalling more than 2 million Prius models

Posted: Updated:

(CNN) - Toyota is recalling more than 2.5 million Prius second generation models worldwide.

The recall was prompted because of problems with the car's steering shaft and electric-powered motor pumps.  Toyota says the cars could be damaged and neglect to switch into hybrid mode if they aren't fixed. 670-thousand of the recalled vehicles were sold in the U.S., the others are spread across Japan and Europe.

The automaker plans to notify affected owners by mail starting in December. This is Toyota's second major recall in as many months.
