A fuel pump could stop operating, causing the engine to run rough and the vehicle to stall, increasing the risk of a crash. This recall expands on a recall originally issued in January.
Lexus manufacturer Toyota will notify owners not included in the January recall by early May. Owners can call the automaker at 800-331-4331 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To fix the problem, dealers will replace the faulty fuel pump with an improved one.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
