Toyota is recalling 2.77 million vehicles around the world for a steering shaft defect that may result in faulty steering and a water pump problem.
Japan's top carmaker said no accidents have been reported related to these two problems.
Some 1.51 million vehicles are being recalled for the steering defect in Japan and 1.25 million vehicles abroad, including 670,000 in the US.
Affected models include the Prius hybrid, Corolla, Wish and other models produced in Japan from 2000 to last year, and from 2000 to 2009 overseas.
Toyota is also recalling 630,000 vehicles spanning five hybrid models, including the Prius, for a defective water pump.
Last month, Toyota had a recall for faulty power-window switches.
