Toyota, Lexus Recall More Vehicles That Could Stall Abruptly
Over 3.3 million vehicles are now included in this expanded recall

Toyota and Lexus have again expanded a recall of cars, trucks, and SUVs,
this time by 1.5 million, because their fuel pumps could stop working and
cause a sudden stall or hesitation while driving.

The recall, first announced in January and expanded in March, now includes
more than 3.34 million vehicles, including those added today.

If a fuel pump fails, a driver may notice additional noise and vibration
from the engine and warning lights may appear on the dashboard. The engine
might not restart if it stalls, which could cause a crash if it happens
while the vehicle is in motion.

Toyota says that dealers will replace the faulty fuel pumps on affected
vehicles free of charge. A spokesperson for the automaker told Consumer
Reports it would “like to refrain from commenting” on whether there have
been any crashes, injuries, fatalities, or fires related to the recall issue.

In documents provided to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration
(NHTSA) in January, the automaker said that although some hybrid vehicles
use this same fuel pump, the Lexus LS500h and LC500h are the only hybrids
included in this recall. Other hybrid vehicles will enter what Toyota calls
a “fail-safe” mode—in which the vehicle can be still driven for short
distances but with reduced power—if the pump fails.

The automaker said that because this situation “does not present an
unreasonable risk to safety,” hybrid vehicles other than the LS500h and
LC500h with faulty fuel pumps will be repaired under a customer satisfactioncampaign instead of a recall. You can learn the difference between the two
in our guide to technical service bulletins.

The problem: The fuel pumps installed in these vehicles may stop working if
a part inside the pump deforms due to excessive fuel absorption, NHTSA
documents say. If the pump fails, it could cause the engine to suddenly
stall or hesitate while the car is in motion, which could lead to a crash.
The pumps are made by Denso, an automotive supplier that makes parts for
many manufacturers.

The fix: Toyota dealers will replace the faulty fuel pumps, free of charge.

How to contact the manufacturer: Toyota says it will contact owners of the
latest group of recalled vehicles by late December 2020. Owners can also
contact Toyota customer service at 800-331-4331 or Lexus customer service at800-255-3987.

NHTSA campaign number: NHTSA has not yet released an updated number for the
expanded campaign. The previous campaign number is 20V12.

Check to see whether your vehicle has an open recall: NHTSA’s website will
tell you whether your vehicle has any open recalls that need to be addressed.

If you plug your car’s 17-digit vehicle identification number (VIN) into
NHTSA’s website and this recall doesn’t appear, it means your vehicle
doesn’t currently have any open recalls. Because automakers issue recalls
often, and for many older vehicles, we recommend checking back regularly to
see whether your vehicle has had a recall issued.
