Toyota is recalling approximately 696,000 vehicles, including Lexus LS, LC, RC, GS, IS, ES, LX, GX, RX and NX models, along with Toyota 4Runner, Camry, Highlander, Land Cruiser, Sienna, Tacoma, Tundra, Avalon and Corolla models. According to Toyota, a faulty fuel pump could cause the vehicle to stall, increasing its risk of being in a crash. 

What’s the Problem?

The fuel pump may stop working, which could affect the engine’s operation and eventually lead to a stall. Toyota says that if this happens when drivers are moving “at higher speeds,” there is a higher chance of a crash.
