Toyota Australia has today announced that it will initiate an expansion of a safety recall originally announced on 4th March 2020. The additional models involve 367 Toyota 86 vehicles produced between April 2018 – November 2018 (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 not restart. If a vehicle stall occurs while driving at higher speeds, this could increase the risk of a collision.
For all involved vehicles, Toyota dealers will replace the fuel pump free of charge to owners.
It is expected that it will take approximately 1.5 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.
