TOYOTA, Japan (Reuters) -- Toyota Motor Corp. has said it will recall about 880,000 sport utility vehicles (SUVs) and pickups worldwide, mostly in the United States, to fix a defect in the front suspension that could hamper steering.

Covered in the recall, aimed at fixing front-suspension ball joints that could wear faster than they should, are the Tacoma and Tundra pickup trucks and Sequoia, Landcruiser Prado and 4Runner/Hilux Surf SUVs built between May 2001 and December 2003.

Of the total, 789,000 units are in North America.

Japan's top auto maker said it does not disclose estimated recall costs.

A spokesman said there was one report of an accident in Japan, where Toyota is recalling 23,800 Hilux Surf and Landcruiser Prado vehicles. Information on accidents elsewhere was not immediately available.

The recall also covers 19,000 vehicles in Europe and 12,000 in Australia.

Shares in Toyota ended morning trade down 0.78 percent at 3,820 yen, compared with a slight gain in the Nikkei average.

Wow, so much for Toyota's "superior" build quality.

I love Dodge trucks, but Toyota builds a solid 4x4 truck. I'd have to say that Toyota's build quality is superior to most brands including American.

I don't think it is NICE TO SEE about any vehicle manufacturer

It is the consumer that loses NOT the manufacturer
