Toyota recalls nearly 1 million cars in U.S.

Toyota announced Wednesday it will voluntarily recall more than 1 million vehicles worldwide to address two separate safety issues.

The recall impacts about 700,000 Prius vehicles sold in the U.S. with model years between 2010 and 2012. The company says the cars may contain a software glitch that could cause the hybrid system to shut down while the car is being driven. Toyota is also recalling a group of RAV4, Tacoma and Lexus RX 350 models. Although the recall involves two different safety issues, the company has received no reports of any accidents or injuries related to these specific problems.
