UNDATED (Indiana's NewsCenter) - Toyota is recalling more than 1.5 million cars.

The Lexus and Toyota vehicles are being recalled because of brake fluid and fuel pump problems.

Company officials say a small amount of brake fluid can slowly leak from the brake master cylinder, resulting in illumination of the brake-warning lamp.

The models affected in the U.S. include the 2005 and 2006 Avalon, 2004 through 2006 non-hybrid Highlander and Lexus RX 330, and 2006 Lexus GS 300, IS 250, and IS 350 vehicles.

If you own one, you'll be notified by mail beginning early in November telling you how to get your vehicle fixed.
