Toyota recall includes the Prius

Toyota is recalling over 500K cars including 113,000 Toyota Prius for faulty parts that could cause drivers to lose control of the steering wheel.

Vehicles being recalled include the Wish, Isis, Prius, Corolla, Corolla Runx, Corolla Fielder, Corolla Spacio, Allex and Ractis brands built between September 2002 and November 2005.

It wasn't immediately clear whether the recall affected cars sold outside Japan. Toyota officials couldn't be reached for comment late Tuesday.

The intermediate shafts and sliding yokes in the recalled cars lack the necessary strength and could distort or crack under strong pressure, causing drivers to lose control of the steering wheel, the Japanese automaker said in a statement.
