(Newser) – Toyota today issued another recall of its Prius, this time recalling 650,000 of the hybrids to fix a faulty cooling pump, reports the Wall Street Journal. The problem could lead to overheating and loss of power, but thus far hadn't resulted in accidents; Toyota, however, appears to be erring on the side of caution after earlier accelerator problems caused it to recall 8.5 million Priuses.
