Last month more than 7.43 million Toyota vehicles were recalled. Toyota wanted to be able to announce that it was the world's best selling auto manufacturer but instead it announced the largest recall in the world during the last 16 years.

While Honda is the most recalled manufacturer in the US, Toyota is fast taking over the top spot for quantity of recalled vehicles, regaining the terrible title it held back in 2010.

The newest recall comes from a water pump problem and a steering shaft defect, which can cause steering problems. Reportedly the recall will also extend to the Toyota Corolla.
