Toyota Recalls 1 Million Vehicles Globally

TOKYO, May 30 (Reuters) - Toyota Motor Corp., the world's second-largest auto maker, said on Tuesday it would recall a total of about 1 million vehicles globally to replace faulty intermediate shafts and sliding yokes. 
In a filing with Japan's Transport Ministry, the company said it would recall a total of 565,756 vehicles in Japan, including Wish, Isis, Prius and other cars built between September 2002 and November 2005. 
A Toyota spokesman said the recall would also cover about 400,000 units overseas. 
The company said it had received no reports of accidents from the defects. 
Toyota as a matter of policy does not disclose the cost of recalls.
