(WKBN) – Toyota and Lexus are recalling about 696,000 vehicles because of a fuel pump issue that could make the cars stall while driving.
The recall is for models years 2018 and 2019 and includes the following vehicles:
• 2018 and 2019 Toyota 4Runner, Highlander, Land Cruiser, and Sequoia SUVs; Toyota Camry sedans; Toyota Sienna minivans; and Toyota Tacoma and Tundra pickup trucks
• 2018 and 2019 Lexus ES 350, GS 350, IS 300, LS 500 and sedans; Lexus LC 500, RC 350, and RC 300 coupes; and Lexus GX 460, LX 570, and RX 350 SUVs
• 2019 Lexus NX 300 and RX 350 L SUVs and GS 300 sedans
• 2019 Toyota Avalon and Corolla sedans
Hybrid vehicles are not included in the recall.
Toyota said the fuel pump “may stop operating,” the automaker said in a statement. If that happens, warning lights and messages would be displayed on the instrument panel, and “the engine may run rough.”
Toyota is currently investigating this issue but doesn’t have a remedy yet. When they figure it out, owners can have the repair done for free.
All known owners of the affected vehicles will be notified by mail by mid-March.
