According to USA Today, Toyota Motor is recalling 2.77 million vehicles around the world for a water pump problem and steering shaft defect.

Approximately 670,000 vehicles in the U.S. are being recalled over the steering defect including the Prius hybrid, Corolla and Wish.

Of those vehicles, some 620,000 spanning five hybrid models, including the Prius, have a defective water pump in addition to the steering shaft defect. Those vehicles were produced from 2001 to 2010 in Japan, and from 2003 to 2011 overseas. Another 10,000 vehicles with only a pump problem are also being recalled.

At this time, no accidents have been reported related to these two problems.

Last month Toyota recalled 7.4 million vehicles for faulty power-window switches that caused fires.
