Toyota is recalling about 3-quarter million vehicles in North America to deal with a faulty fuel pump that could starve the engine of fuel, causing a stall out.
The recall applies to 2018-19 Toyota 4Runner, Avalon, Camry, Corolla, Highlander, Land Cruiser, Sequoia, Sienna, Tacoma and Tundra, and 2018-19 Lexus ES 350, GS 350, GX 460, IS 300, LC 500, LS 500, LX 570, NX 300, RC 300/350 and RX 350.
About 700,000 vehicles are affected in the US and another 54,687 in Canada.
The issue arises from a fuel pump that may stop working, resulting in warning lights and messages to be displayed in the instrument cluster. It may also cause the engine to run rough and eventually stall out, with the vehicle unable to be restarted. The stall could occur at speed, posing a crash risk to surrounding traffic.
The company is still formulating a repair and will contact owners of affected vehicles by mail, requesting they attend their nearest dealership.
