Toyota is recalling 1.53 million Lexus, Avalon and other models for brake fluid and fuel pump problems.

It is the latest in a string of quality problems for the world's biggest automaker.

Toyota said it will call back for repairs about 740,000 cars in the U.S. and 599,000 in Japan.

The majority of vehicles this time around need to be fixed for a problem with the brake master cylinder which could lead to weaker braking power.

No accidents have been reported from the two defects.
