More than 750,000 Mitsubishi and Toyota cars across Australia are being recalled.

Mitsubishi is recalling a total of 429,981 cars, including its popular Lancer, Pajero, Outlander, Triton, Colt, Challenger and i-MiEV models. While Toyota is recalling about 324,000 Prius, Prius V, Corolla and Rukus.

The recalls follow the discovery that some vehicles are at risk from problems such as leaking fuel tanks, faulty brake boosters, faulty indicator lights and loss of power.

Toyota is also issuing a second, airbag-related recall for nearly 5000 Prius vehicles built between April 2009 and April 2012.

According to, owners of the affected cars will be notified by mail to organise a repair, which will be free.

In February, Toyota recalled nearly 100,000 RAV4s in Australia as part of a global recall.

In 2014, the manufacturer issued one of the biggest car recalls in history.

That saw more than 6 million vehicles called back to fix a range of safety defects. 297,000 of which were in Australia. Read more on that here.

In the same year Toyota announced it was pulling out of manufacturing in Australia by 2017.
