- Toyota originally issued a recall back in January for 700,000 vehicles.
- It is due to an issue with the fuel pump.
- That number has now risen past one million affected vehicles.
After issues with its fuel pumps, Toyota has expanded its recall of vehicles by more than a million. Back in January, this number was 700,000, and it has greatly increased since. The total now stands at 1.8 million vehicles recalled. These recalled Toyota and Lexus model vehicles can stop operating at random and cause the engine to fail.
The company issues a statement: “If this were to occur, warning lights and messages may be displayed on the instrument panel. If a vehicle stall occurs while driving at higher speeds, this could increase the risk of a crash.”
