Toyota Australia has today announced that it will initiate an expansion of a safety recall previously announced on 4th March 2020. The additional models involve 26,367 Camry (incl. hybrid), Corolla, Hiace, Kluger and HiLux and LandCruiser 200 vehicles produced between July 2017 and December 2019 (inclusive).
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 to owners.
Depending on the vehicle, it is expected that it will take approximately 2-4 hours to replace the fuel pump. However, based on the Dealer’s work schedule, it may be necessary for the owner to make the vehicle available for a longer period of time.
