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

A Toyota and Lexus remember that previously listed almost seven-hundred,000 likely influenced cars has been amended to consist of extra than 1.1 million new rides. All round, extra than 1.eight million autos, vans, crossovers, and SUVs are part of a voluntary remember with regards to gasoline pumps that may well stop functioning.   

On January 13, 2020, Toyota declared a safety remember for 695,541 Lexus and Toyota types. It incorporated the Toyota 4Runner, Camry, Highlander, Land Cruiser, Sequoia, Sienna, Tacoma, Avalon, Corolla, and Tundra, in addition 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 have been specifically 2019 design a long time, whilst the relaxation have been 2018-2019. 

Right now, March 4, 2020, Toyota mentioned it has expanded the remember to roughly 1.eight million cars complete. Toyota did not provide a particular selection, but here is the whole checklist of likely influenced autos: 

  • 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 cars, a minimal-force gasoline pump inside of the gasoline tank could are unsuccessful. If this gasoline pump fails whilst the motor vehicle is in use, the motor vehicle could sputter and stall. Without warning of the impending malfunction, other than some lights on the dashboard, this could current a hazardous predicament for the driver. 

For all influenced cars, Toyota and Lexus will substitute the defective parts with “enhanced” gasoline pumps. Notifications will start off in May.
