Toyota adds more than 1.1M vehicles to previous fuel pump recall

A Toyota and Lexus remember that previously listed approximately 700,000 probably impacted autos has been amended to incorporate more than 1.1 million new rides. Total, more than 1.8 million cars and trucks, trucks, crossovers, and SUVs are component of a voluntary remember relating to fuel pumps that may possibly halt working.   

On January thirteen, 2020, Toyota declared a safety remember for 695,541 Lexus and Toyota designs. It included the Toyota 4Runner, Camry, Highlander, Land Cruiser, Sequoia, Sienna, Tacoma, Avalon, Corolla, and Tundra, as well as the Lexus LS 500, LC 500, RC 350, RC 300, GS 350, IS 300, ES 350, LX 570, GX 460, RX 350 NX 300, RX 350L, and GS 300. The Avalon, Corolla, NX 300, RX 350L, and GS 300 in the preliminary remember were specially 2019 model many years, whilst the rest were 2018-2019. 

These days, March 4, 2020, Toyota stated it has expanded the remember to approximately 1.8 million autos total. Toyota did not deliver a unique amount, but listed here is the entire list of probably impacted cars and trucks: 

  • 2013-2015 Lexus LS 460
  • 2013-2014 Lexus GS 350
  • 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser, Lexus IS-F
  • 2014-2015 Toyota 4Runner, Land Cruiser Lexus GX 460, IS 350, LX 570
  • 2015 Lexus NX 200t, RC 350
  • 2017 Lexus IS 200t, RC 200t
  • 2017-2019 Toyota Sienna Lexus RX 350
  • 2018 Lexus GS 300
  • 2018-2019 Toyota Avalon, Camry, Corolla, Highlander, Sequoia, Tacoma, Tundra Lexus ES 350, GS 350, IS 300, IS 350, LC 500, LC 500h, LS 500, LS 500h, RC 300, RC 350, RX 350L

On these autos, a small-strain fuel pump inside of the fuel tank could fall short. If this fuel pump fails whilst the vehicle is in use, the vehicle could sputter and stall. Without having warning of the impending malfunction, other than some lights on the dashboard, this could current a hazardous problem for the driver. 

For all impacted autos, Toyota and Lexus will change the defective parts with “enhanced” fuel pumps. Notifications will commence in May.
