Toyota will recall an additional 1.5 million vehiclesNovember 20, 2020
The Japanese automaker is forced to expand its recall campaign due to potentially faulty fuel pumps to more than 1.5 million vehicles.
According to documents published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), a defective part supplied by Denso can cause the engine to stall, inevitably increasing the risk of an accident. The review applies to a large list of models, including: 4Runner 2018-2019, Avalon 2019-2020, Corolla Hatchback 2019, Highlander 2017-2019, Camry, Corolla 2020, Land Cruiser 2017-2019, Tacoma 2017-2020, RAV4 2019-2020, Sequoia 2019-2020, Sienna 2017-2020 and Tundra 2019-2020.
Also included are quite a few Lexus cars: ES350 2017-2018, GS200t 2017-2019, GS300h 2019-2020 LC500h, LS500 2019-2020, GX460 2018-2019, IS200t 2017, IS300 2019, IS350 2019, LC500, 2018 LS500, 2019 LS500h, LX570 2018-2019, RC200t 2017, RC300, RC350, 2017 and 2019-2020 RX350, RX350L 2018-2020, UX200 2019 and NX300 2018-2019.
The Japanese automaker will notify the owners of these cars by December 23 of the need to provide the vehicle to the nearest service center. It’s also worth noting that there is no word in the documents released by NHTSA about a possible reimbursement plan, but given that all the vehicles included in this recall campaign are relatively new, they should be covered by a warranty.
