Summary Box: Toyota recalls 1.53 million more cars

NEW RECALL: Toyota Motor Corp. on Thursday recalled 1.53 million cars, including 740,000 in the U.S., because brake fluid could leak. Honda Motor Co. also said it's recalling an undetermined number of vehicles for the same problem.

WHAT'S THE PROBLEM?: Leaky fluid can illuminate the brake warning lamp and affect brake performance. No accidents have been reported.

RECALL TROUBLE: Toyota has recalled more than 11 million cars and trucks worldwide in the last year for safety problems including floor mats that can trap accelerators.
