Toyota Motor Corp said it was recalling more than 1.7 million vehicles worldwide. More than 12 million Toyota vehicles have been recalled since 2009.
1.34 million of the recalled vehicles have been recalled due to a faulty fuel pump and connecting pipe outside the U.S in the Japanese market. Among those recalled are the Noah minivan and Avensis units.
Toyota said it is also recalling some Lexus units, including about 245,000 sold in the United States.
