Toyota Australia has today announced that it will initiate a safety recall involving FJ Cruiser, Camry, Corolla, Kluger, Hilux, Landcruiser and Prado vehicles produced between September 2013 – June 2015 and September 2017 – July 2019. The total number of vehicles involved is 45,683.
The involved vehicles are equipped with a fuel pump which may stop operating. If this were to occur, warning lights and messages may display on the instrument panel, and the engine may not run smoothly. This can result in a vehicle stall, and the vehicle may be unable to be restarted. If a vehicle stall occurs while driving at higher speeds, this could increase the risk of a crash.
For all involved vehicles, Toyota dealers will replace the fuel pump with an improved one free of charge.
Depending on the vehicle, it is expected that it will take approximately 2-4 hours to replace the fuel pump. However, depending upon the Dealer’s work schedule, it may be necessary for the owner to make the vehicle available for a longer period of time.
